lemony kale salad

last night i spent over an hour at a local party store
planning for my upcoming olympics party.

also, if kale isn't your new favorite thing yet,
i don't know what your problem is :)

honestly, i'm obsessed.
i was actually a little leery of this recipe at first,
thinking this salad would be WAY too hearty and bitter.

it was maybe my most favorite salad i've ever made!

the dressing is perfect, light and lemony,
it it softens the bite of the kale and chard.


1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
4 cups torn kale leaves
2 cups torn Swiss chard leaves
4 teaspoons unsalted pumpkin seed kernels
1/4 cup sliced green onions (about 2)
1 ounce shaved pecorino romano

recipe via cooking light


1. combine first 5 ingredients, stirring until sugar dissolves.

2. add kale and chard; toss. let stand 10 minutes.

3. heat a skillet over medium heat. add pumpkin seeds;
cook 5 minutes or until brown, stirring frequently.

4. add kernels, onions, and cheese to greens; toss.

(i was generous with the cheese and pumpkin seeds)
