RECIPE: Raw Kale, Chard & Carrot Salad with Parmesan

Ingredients:
1/2 bunch kale, ribs removed
1/2 bunch chard, ribs removed
2 carrots, sliced into matchsticks
2 green onions, finely diced
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1/4 cup finely grated parmesan cheese + extra for garnish
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil, more for garnish
Freshly squeezed juice of 1 lemon
Large pinch kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Procedure:
1. Roll kale and chard leaves into cigar shapes and cut them into thin strips. Then cut them the opposite way so that you have small bits of greens. Put into a large bowl. Add the carrots and green onions and toss so that everything is well combined.

2. In a small jar, add in the garlic, cheese, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and a lot of freshly ground pepper. Give everything a good shake and pour over the salad, tossing well so that every bit is coated. Serve with additional cheese.
