This made enough for two as a pretty hearty side. You could double this to make 2 main dish salads.



  • 1 bunch kale
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 apple
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup walnuts


  1. Wash and de-stem the kale by pulling the leaves off the stem and tearing into smaller pieces.
  2. In a small dish, combine the lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, and salt, and drizzle it over the kale.
  3. Using your hands, massage the kale leaves with the dressing.
  4. Chop and apple into small chunks and add to your salad.
  5. Grate or shred fresh parmesan cheese on top.
  6. Toss in the walnuts (if they’re whole, break them up a bit).
  7. Serve immediately or keep it in the fridge for up to 2 hours until ready to serve.
