Kale Salad

A tasty and healthy salad that makes a wonderful accompaniment to any meal or even a meal in itself on those days you just want a lighter lunch or dinner.
Kale Salad
Kale (massaged & chopped thinly)
Bacon or Pancetta (sliced)
Red onion (sliced very finely)
Panko Breadcrumbs
Garlic (chopped finely)
Walnuts (chopped)
Parmesan Cheese (grated)
Bold Olive Oil (I used Decimi)
Balsamic Vinegar 
Fry the bacon & set aside.  Then fry the Panko breadcrumbs & chopped garlic in a little olive oil until slightly browned & set aside. 
Wash the kale then cut away the thick spines on the leaves. Gently massage the kale leaves for a few minutes to tenderize & then cut it into thin ribbons & add to a serving bowl. Add the red onion, walnuts & bacon and toss with the olive oil/balsamic dressing. Just before serving sprinkle the breadcrumbs and cheese on top. Occasionally I add dried cranberries for a little bit of sweetness.
