  • 1 bunch kale
  • ¼ cup roughly chopped nuts
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 lemon (juice only)
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper


  • Wash and dry the kale leaves thoroughly, and remove the thick middle stem. Cut or rip the leaves into bite sized pieces, and place them in a salad bowl.
  • Add lemon juice and seasoning, and use your hands to massage the lemon and kale for a minute or two. This will make the kale leaves much softer and easier to eat.
  • Then, add your chopped nuts and shredded Parmesan cheese. Stir to combine the ingredients evenly, then serve.



  • Store leftovers in a refrigerator for up to 3 days.
