my mom and i came across this recipe when she was here with us right after moses was born and i’ve made it pretty much weekly since. everyone i have shared this with really likes it. even ian, who is not always fond of ingredients like kale, loves this salad. finely shredding the kale in the food processor makes all the difference – it’s so much more palpable that way! and is well-coated and wonderfully complimented by the other simple ingredients.

-in a food processor, finely chop one big bunch/bag of kale.

-in a small bowl, whisk together 1 tbs olive oil, 1 tsp honey, and the juice of one lemon.

-in a large bowl, mix the kale, 1/3-1/2 cup currants1/3-1/2 cup chopped nuts (the original recipe calls for pine nuts; i have used both almonds and hazelnuts) and a big pile of freshly grated parmesan cheese.

-drizzle the dressing on top and toss to combine!

this salad stays super yummy dressed and in the fridge for several days.
