Scale

Ingredients

  • 6 Cups Organic Kale, thick center rib removed and cut into small pieces
  • 2 Organic Lemons, juiced
  • 3 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Pure Maple Syrup
  • 2 Cloves Organic Garlic
  • 1/4 Cup Golden Raisins
  • 1/4 Cup Dried Cranberries
  • 1/2 Cup Pistachios
  • 1/4 Cup Pine Nuts (optional)
  • 1/2 Cup Parmesan Cheese (divided 1/4 cup finely grated for dressing, 1/4 cup shredded for topping)

Instructions

  1. In a small mixing bowl, add the lemon juice, vinegar and syrup and garlic and whisk until combined.
  2. Very slowly drizzle in the oil, while whisking vigorously.  The dressing will slowly become emulsified and thicker.  Add 1/4 cup of the finely grated parmesan cheese and whisk in.
  3. Combine the kale, pistachios, pine nuts and raisins in a big bowl and pour the dressing over to coat.
  4. Sprinkle the remaining shredded parmesan cheese on top before serving.
