Kale And Brussel Sprouts Salad

Remove kale leaves from the rib. Wash if necessary, drain to dry, put them on a board and fine
chop. Add those to a bowl with thin sliced, cleaned brussels sprouts so that you have equal parts of kale and brussels sprouts.
Make a vinaigrette by squeezing about half a lemon in a bowl and add a half tablespoon of dijon
mustard. With a whisk, incorporate a fine drizzle of olive oil until it all becomes a smooth
emulsion. Add the olive oil until the tartness is softened. Add a little kosher salt to taste. Pour the vinaigrette over the greens to taste. Keep any leftover vinaigrette in the frig.
Over the greens add just about anything you like but in a restaurant recently, we had fine
chopped dried cranberries, marcona almonds (Whole Foods in the cheese section), and goat
cheese. Stir and serve.
The greens will stand up to the rest of the ingredients and won’t get soggy. It’s delicious and
