Local Farmers Market and Raw Kale Salad recipe

A couple of weeks ago I was  at our local farmers market in Lebanon Ohio.  There is  one vendor whose product I really like.  That Guy's Family Farm  Organic Produce.   Their booth is so inviting, from the friendly smiles to the beautiful bouquets of  flowers and  the  best looking organic produce.

 I had never had Raw Kale before!  When I was growing up the only greens we had was out of can, the smell of that was a turnoff.  But I have reading about the benefits of Kale and saw this gorgeous leafy vegetable and thought I would try it.  I made a Tuscan Raw Kale Salad. I was amazed how much the Raw Kale tasted  like Broccoli.

4-6 cups kale, loosely packed, sliced leaves  and midribs removed
juice of 1 lemon
3-4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
salt & pepper, to taste
2/3 cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese
1.2 cup toasted walnuts
Whisk together lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper to taste
Pour over kale in serving bowl and toss well.
Add 2/3 of the cheese and toss again.
Let kale sit for at least 5 minutes. Toss again, and top with remaining cheese and toasted walnuts
Will keep well in fridge for 3-4 days.
