Obviously I am not the HEALTHIEST blogger, or eater for that matter. I like to think that while I do not necessarily eat healthy all the time, there is no doubt that I eat well.

Even though flavor is way more important to me than being as healthy as can be, I do try to add nutritious ingredients to my food whenever I can.

But for some reason, certain members of my family meet me with great resistance. Cough, the only other female in my house, cough. I’ve been trying to sneak kale into things for months now and every time I do I wish you could see the face that is made at me. It’s very twisty and dreary and usually followed by some dismissive sound.

So I just decided to stop tying to hide it and give it to the people in a simple and honest form. Pretty sure I didn’t change the heart and mind of my mother, but I thought this was down right scrumptious.

You will need…

2 small bunches of kale, cleaned and roughly chopped into bite-sized pieces

3 tablespoons lemon juice

¼ cup olive oil

3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

2 shallots, thinly sliced

2 tablespoons honey

1/3 cup salted macadamia nuts, roughly chopped

¼ finely grated parmesan cheese

Salt and pepper to taste

Start by tossing the kale together with the lemon juice and set it aside to soak, tossing ever so often for about 1 hour.

While the kale is soaking up the lemon juice, whisk together the vinegar and honey in a bowl. Add in the shallots and season well with salt and pepper. Set aside until the kale has soaked for an hour.

When the kale is ready, whisk the olive oil in with the shallots and vinegar.

Pour the shallots and oil and vinegar over the kale and toss well.

Toss in the parmesan and nuts and serve.
