* 2 bunches of kale (about 1 lb), rinsed and dried, tear leaves off in small pieces or thinly slice crosswise (remove ribs/stems!)
* Juice of 2-3 small lemons
* 2 Tbsps olive oil
* 2 Tbsps maple syrup or honey (or one of each is yummy)
* 1/4 cup lightly toasted pine nuts or almonds
* 1/4 cup dried cranberries, cherries (chopped), or currants
* 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan or Romano cheeses plus some bigger shavings to top salad with
* Sea salt to taste
* Freshly ground black pepper to taste


1. Place the thinly sliced kale in a large bowl and toss with the lemon juice and olive oil (add more of either thing if you feel like there's not enough to cover everything.) Massage the mixture with your fingers until all of the kale is well-coated and looks a bit darker in color. Let sit for a half hour minimum (or not, if you're in a hurry!)

2. Add the rest of the ingredients and toss to coat. Give it a taste and adjust the seasonings, if needed. 

3. Top with the shaved cheese and serve!
