  • 1 bunch of black kale 2–3 tbsp. (30–45mL) balsamic vinegar zest of ½ lemon sea salt – to taste freshly ground pepper ¼–⅓ cup (50–75mL) olive oil a shot of chili oil (optional) parmesan – lots grated ¼ cup (50mL) currants – soak for 10 min & drain
  • ¼ cup (50mL) pine nuts lightly toasted


  1. Remove the tougher stems and very finely julienne the kale leaves.
  2. Whisk together the vinegar, lemon zest, salt, pepper & olive oil. Toss on the julienned kale.
  3. Add the parmesan, currants and pine nuts just before serving (the nuts will go soggy if they sit in the vinaigrette too long). You can eat it right away but it softens & mellows if left to sit for at least 15 mins. Serve with Raincoast Crisps.
