I wanted to make the kale salad I had at 5 Leaves Restaurant in Brooklyn so I attempted to replicate it from memory. Sorry 5 Leaves, but I think mine is a little better 😉
Here it’s served with my Quick and Simple Chicken Curry.
Begin with a bunch of kale.
Remove stems with a knife and cut the kale into very thin strips.
Crush and pit five Kalamata olives.
Using a food processor or stick blender, blend olives with the juice of one lemon
and three tablespoons olive oil.
Pour mixture into the bowl of kale strips, mix well.
Grate about 1/4 cup of pecorino cheese and toss.
Voila! Quick, simple and with fresh, bold flavors.
You can’t stop eating this! Be warned.
