Who doesn’t love Pinterest? While browsing through for kale salads, I came upon the blog thegarlicdiaries.com – If you are a garlic lover, like myself, you should definitely visit her blog.  She has an array of recipes that look amazing.  This is the first recipe I tried, minus the mustard, but this recipe will become a main staple at home.  It’s extremely easy to make and will go with any main dish you decide to serve at home.


2 bunches of kale (I used half a bag of trader joe’s pre-cut kale)

1/2 cup of Sliced almonds

1/2 cup Freshly grated parmasen cheese

Dressing – Mix all ingredients together

1 lemon – squeeze all juices out

2 tablespoons of olive oil

1 garlic clove minced or roast a garlic and puree into dressing  (Tender Greens offers a kale salad with a roasted garlic lemon vinaigrette – absolutely delicious)

Salt and pepper to taste

Lemon zest (optional)

Pour dressing over salad and mix.  Simple, easy, and delicious.
