Steps (Prepare the Kale):

  • Turn the grill on high

  • Wash & dry 3-4 bushels of kale. Keep the leaves whole.

  • Drizzle with olive oil.

  • Grill the oiled leaves on high heat, flipping frequently, until the leaves are wilted, deep green and slightly charred.

  • Cut along the fibrous stem over a salad bowl so the charred, tender kale falls off, then cut into smaller, bite-sized pieces.

Ingredients (dressing):

  • 2-5 cloves of garlic, pressed

  • 1/2 a lemon, squeezed

  • 2 tsp anchovies paste (or 4 - 6 anchovies crushed with back of spoon)

  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard

  • 2 tsp worcestershire

  • a few dashes of Tabasco

  • ½ tsp sea salt and pepper

Steps (dressing):

  • whisk together.

  • Add 1/2 C olive oil in a thin stream as you continue to whisk vigorously until a rich, thick dressing forms.

Toss the kale with the dressing and top with ¼ C Parmesan cheese.
