Gather your supplies
Wash kale carefully. Then pat dry.
Using a paring knife, cut out center stalks.
Take a handful of trimmed kale leaves and stack them loosely.
Then roll them tightly into a log.
Thinly slice the kale and repeat with remaining leaves. Add sliced leaves to a salad bowl.
Now make the lemon vinaigrette. Add lemon juice and crushed garlic to a small bowl. Then add a teaspoon of Dijon.
Slowly whisk in olive oil. I use a little less than 1/4 cup. Then add salt and pepper to taste.
Pour vinaigrette over the kale and mix thoroughly.
Let kale marinate for twenty minutes and then enjoy!
