favorite kale salad

This salad is adapted from a Thanksgiving Day salad that my cousin brought to a family dinner one time. It is not the MOST requested salad at every dinner and event... and so easy and so good for you!

salad ingredients:

  • baby kale or 1-2 bunches kale, cut off stems (pictured: baby kale from Costco)
  • dried currants
  • sunflower seeds or pine nuts (pine nuts can be very expensive)
  • grated or shaved parmesan

dressing ingredients:

  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced or 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper, to taste


  1. whisk together salad dressing ingredients with a fork
  2. slowly pour over kale a little at a time, you may not need ALL the dressing, and toss to combine and massage into leaves (lemon will tenderize really tough kale leaves)
  3. top with currants, sunflower seeds, and parmesan
