My​ ​Favorite​ ​Kale​ ​Salad

I’ve had some great kale salads at local restaurants recently since it’s a super popular fall/winter menu item. One of my favorites is from Cook in Newton, so I tried to re-create it at home with a little of my own added flare … It was delicious! Here’s the recipe:

Kale Salad

Dressing ingredients:

1 small shallot, chopped
¼ cup white wine vinegar
¼ cup red wine vinegar
¾ cup canola oil


Salad ingredients: kalesalad

1 large bunch of Tuscan kale
½ pound of Brussels sprouts
1 cup shredded parmesan
½ cup pine nuts
Salt (optional)


Spread pine nuts on a baking sheet and toast in the oven at 375 for 5-10 minutes, or until golden brown.

While the pine nuts toast, thoroughly wash the kale and pat it dry with a paper towel. Remove the stems and ribs from the kale, tear it into bite-sized pieces, and massage it with your hands for a minute.

Thinly slice the Brussels sprouts, removing any hard pieces of stem, and add to the bowl of kale. 

Add 3/4 of the dressing to the greens, and mix in the cheese, pine nuts, and salt. Add additional dressing if needed.

  1. Mmm definitely trying this! I just made a salad last night to recreate one I ate in Italy…. arugula, shaved Parmesan, and steak. I used evoo, lemon juice, and a sprinkle of salt for the dressing. I love the pine nut addition and mixing it up with kale! Thanks!!
