My friend, Sutton, introduced me to this extremely simple, yet flavorful salad. The combination of shredded kale, parmesan, pumpkin seeds, and a simple vinaigrette create a wonderfully, unique, texture-rich salad.


  • 1 bunch of kale (try red russian, or curly)
  • 1 to 1.5 cups thickly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup toasted pumpkin seeds
  • Lemon-Garlic Vinaigrette


  1. Finely shred/cut the kale, rinse well, and remove excess water in a salad spinner.
  2. Combine kale and enough vinaigrette to evenly coat in a large bowl. Let stand for 1 hour.
  3. Toss with parmesan cheese and pumpkin seeds and serve.
