    Sharon123's Note:

    A re-creation of the Tuscan Kale Salad from the True Food Kitchen in Pheonix, Arizona. The shredded kale is tossed in a simple lemon garlic dressing with a few handfuls of breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese thrown in. This is a vegan version of this salad. The perfect salad starter for any holiday menu! The key to this salad is finely chopping (or shredding) the kale.

    For the salad and dressing

    For the pecan parmesan

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 300°F Spread the pecans onto a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 8-10 minutes until fragrant and lightly golden.
    2. 2
      Remove the stems from the kale and discard (you can save for smoothies if you are hard core!). Finely chop the kale leaves (the smaller, the better!).
    3. 3
      Wash the kale and spin dry. Place dried kale into a large bowl.
    4. 4
      For the dressing: In a mini food processor, process the garlic until minced. Now add the lemon, oil, salt, and pepper and process until combined. Adjust to taste, if desired. Pour the dressing onto the kale and mix it into the kale with your hands or toss with spoons. Keep mixing for about 1 minute to ensure everything is coated perfectly.
    5. 5
      For the pecan parm: Rinse out the mini processor and pat dry. Add the pecans into the processor and process until the pecans are the size of peas or a bit larger. Now add in the nutritional yeast, oil, and salt and process again until it's a coarse crumb. Be sure not to over-process - we still want a nice crunchy texture here, not powder.
    6. 6
      Sprinkle the pecan Parmesan all over the salad. Toss on a handful or two of dried cranberries. Wrap and place in the fridge for 30-60 minutes to soften. I tried letting this salad sit overnight in the fridge and I greatly preferred the flavour of the salad served the day of, so I don't recommend making this salad the day before and letting it sit in the fridge overnight.
    7. 7
      Note:.
    8. 8
      1) Instead of a mini processor, you can chop/whisk the dressing and pecan "parmesan" by hand.
    9. 9
      2) For a nut-free version, try using breadcrumbs instead of pecans.
