Kale and Brussels Sprout Salad

This is my current go-to salad and I make it almost once a week. I'm sorry to my friends for the lack of diversity recently. But its so good!! Its crunchy and salty and tart and sweet. It's a winner. Try it out!

1 head lacinato kale
10-12 brussels sprouts
2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts
handful of dried cranberries
2-inch cube of parmesan, grated

1 small garlic clove, minced
1 lemon, juiced
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon sugar
olive oil
salt and pepper

Wash, de-spine, and shred the kale and place in a large bowl. Trim the brussels sprouts, halve them, then shave them (cut thinly) and add them to the same bowl. Top with pine nuts, cranberries, and parmesan.

Mix together the garlic, lemon juice, vinegar, mustard, and sugar in a jar. Add olive oil until its about equal parts above mixture and olive oil. Add salt and pepper, shake vigorously and taste for seasonings. Pour the dressing on the salad, mix well, and serve.
