KALE AND HAZELNUT SALAD


This is a kale salad with hazelnuts, Parmesan and an olive oil/balsamic dressing. As you probably know kale is a super food packed with a lot of the good, healthy stuff. This salad is great as a side dish and you can use kale or cavolo nero. To get the kale tender you could massage the kale with olive oil or put it into boiling water for a few minutes.

• A bundle of Kale or cavolo nero
• Parmesan (as much as you prefer)
• 30 – 40 grams Hazelnuts
• 1 tbsp Balsamic vinegar

Toast the hazelnuts in a hot pan for a few minutes. Set aside. Rinse the kale and remove the stem in the middle. Cut into smaller pieces. Blanche the kale in boiling water for 2 minutes and let drain or massage the kale with one tablespoon of olive oil. Shave or cut Parmesan into smaller pieces. Mix olive oil and balsamic vinegar in a small bowl and pour over the salad. Add salt and pepper.
