  • 1 large bunch Tuscan kale, washed, thick stems removed (about a pound) note: Tuscan Kale is the darker, less curly kale, also known as Dinosaur kale or Lacinato Kale.
  • 3 tablespoons minced shallots
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup good quality finely grated parmesan cheese (I recommend Parmigiano-Reggiano)


  1. Slice the Kale: Stack about 1/3 of the kale leaves at a time into a pile and slice thinly into 1/4-inch shreds. Repeat with the rest of the kale. Transfer to a serving bowl.
  2. Make the Dressing and Toss the Salad: In a small bowl, combine shallot, lemon juice, honey, salt and pepper; whisk in oil in a slow stream. Pour dressing over kale and toss. Sprinkle parmesan on and and toss again.
