Baby Kale Salad with Pine Nuts and Parmesan

the lightness of this kale salad pairs well with any meal and every occasion

This delightful salad is lemony and light with the bonus of crunchy toasted pine nuts and subtly flavorful parmesan. This is the perfect salad for any and every day. It’s a pleasing blend of textures and flavors and simple to prepare. My kids list it as their favorite salad!

There are a few rules for success. The kale must be baby kale, since the delicate flavors demand tender leaves. Toasting the pine nuts requires some care, so make sure to keep a close eye on the pine nuts as they toast. They will brown and then burn quickly if you forget about them for a few minutes.

This salad has provided an effective way to get nutritious kale into my kids’ diets. The nutritional benefits of kale are plentiful; it’s low in calories, high in fiber and full of antioxidants, iron, calcium and vitamins A, C, and K. Eating more kale can decrease inflammation and incidence of chronic disease while improving bone health. Hope it helps get your family eating more kale too!
