Parmesan Kale Salad
This delicious salad is so simple to make, yet hits the spot for a good kale salad. It’s crisp and crunchy and tossed with grated parmesan, toasted panko crumbs and chopped almonds.
I love preparing this for a quick & easy lunch for the week. The longer the kale sits in the dressing, the better it tastes!
The kale is massaged in a simple lemon dijon dressing, then tossed together with toasted panko and roasted almonds.
Massaging the kale with the dressing, ideally with your hands, is KEY to a good kale salad. It helps break down the fibers, making it easier to chew and digest.
What you’ll need to make this crunchy parmesan kale salad
The salad itself is made up of only 4 ingredients: kale, toasted panko crumbs, roasted almonds and grated parmesan.
I personally enjoy the simplicity of the ingredients, but here are some other add ins that would work well in this salad:
- Chickpeas or cannellini beans
- Dried cranberries
- Grated carrots
- Chopped apples
This kale salad is delicious on its own for a light meal, but you can serve it with an additional protein source, like baked salmon or crispy tofu, for more of a complete meal.
This recipe is easy to make, so delicious, and pairs well with any meal! I can’t wait for you guys to try it.
