Raw Kale and Brussels Sprouts Salad

This recipe from Bon Appetit uses raw kale and brussels sprout to make a delicious, nutty salad.

Serves 2 as a main, 4 as a side.

For the salad:

1/2 bunch of Tuscan or lacinato kale (about 1/4 lb), center stem discarded, leaves thinly sliced or shredded in food processor
1/2 pint of brussels sprouts, trimmed, finely sliced or shredded in food processor
1/2 cup almonds with skins, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup finely grated Pecorino

For the dressing:

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon minced shallot
1 small garlic clove, finely grated
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt plus more for seasoning
Freshly ground black pepper


Toast the almonds.
Head 1 Tbsp. oil in a small skillet and heat over medium-high heat.
Add chopped almonds to skillet and stir frequently until golden brown in spots, about 2 minutes.
Transfer nuts to a paper towel-lined plate.
Sprinkle almonds lightly with salt.

Prepare the dressing.
