Kale Salad with Toasted Pine Nuts and Parmesan

Kale Salad with Toasted Pine Nuts and Parmesan // wishfulchef.comFor a quick weeknight dish, I came up with this incredibly simple and healthy salad. Raw kale is the perfect green during the fall and winter months because of it’s hearty texture. I added some lightly toasted pine nuts for a bit more crunch and topped it with a few pieces of shaved Parmesan. For the perfect meal, serve it next to a delicious roast chicken.

I like to prepare this salad one to two hours ahead of time and serve it at room temperature. It also tastes great the next day allowing the kale to soften and the flavors to blend. And if you love kale like I do, try out my easy chickpea kale salad.
