RECIPE: Raw Kale, Chard & Carrot Salad with Parmesan

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

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.
