This easy kale salad recipe only takes 5 minutes to make with 5 easy ingredients, and tastes great with just about everything! Feel free to adjust the proportions of any of the ingredients below to taste.


  • 5 ounces kale, roughly chopped with thick stems removed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons freshly-squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup freshly-grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds, lightly toasted
  • fine sea salt and freshly-ground black pepper, to taste


  1. Massage kale. Combine the kale, olive oil and lemon juice in a large mixing bowl. Use your fingers to massage the oil and lemon juice into the kale for about 1-2 minutes, or until the kale has softened.
  2. Add remaining ingredients. Add the Parmesan, sliced almonds, a pinch of salt and a few twists of black pepper and toss until evenly combined. Taste and add extra salt, pepper or lemon juice, if needed.
  3. Serve. Serve immediately and enjoy!
