healthy recipe: thanksgiving salad with kale, cauliflower and parmesan cheese

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays celebrated in the U.S., not because of what it stands for from  the historical aspect of it, but because I literally consider it a “thanks” giving day for my family and the many blessing which go unnoticed throughout the year.

So, although most of the fun of thanksgiving revolves around cooking a hearty meal to celebrate giving thanks, I can’t help but look for ways to make the meal  healthy and light.  In light of that fact, one must on our dinner table is a salad, so I was glad to come across a recipe  here which I can  surely include on  my menu, while I host this years Thanksgiving dinner.

Thanksgiving Sides :: Kale, Cauliflower + Parmesan Salad

Refreshing and clean—a welcomed crunch to your Thanksgiving plate.

½ head of cauliflower
large bunch of kale
Fresh parmigiano reggiano to grate
Juice of one lemon
2 Tbsp Olive oil
Salt + pepper

Wash and tear Kale, removing spine. Slice quartered Cauliflower with a mandolin. Pour good extra virgin olive oil in the bottom of your serving dish. Toss kale and Cauliflower in oil and lemon juice. Salt and pepper to taste. Grate fresh parmesan generously (to taste) over greens. Serves 4-6 as a side.
