  • 1 bunch Dinosaur Kale washed and thinly sliced
  • 4 oz cooked chicken, cut into cubes or strips can substitute for tofu, steak, or any other preferred protein of choice
  • 3 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Handful of croutons optional
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 head garlic
  • 2 cup olive oil
  • 3 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 anchovy
  • 1/4 tsp cod liver oil
  • 1 tsp honey
  • Salt and papper to taste
  • 1 tbsp chili flakes, for some optional added spiciness optional


  • Preheat oven to 250°F.
  • Peel all garlic cloves and place them in a small, oven-safe pot. Add enough olive oil to cover (about 2 cups) cover, and bake until tender (about 2 hours). Let cool, strain the oil, and set both aside for later.
  • Now to make the dressing! Using a blender or food processor, add all dressing ingredients except for the garlic oil and blend on high for 30 seconds. Then slowly drizzle in about 1 cup of your garlic oil until the dressing has reached your desired consistency. It should be thick but also easy to toss your kale in.
    *If you have any extra garlic oil, that’s great! You can always save it in the fridge for many other delicious recipes.
  • Lastly, assemble your salad to your liking! Throw all of your dry ingredients into a bowl and give them a toss before dressing. Remember that dinosaur kale leaves’ firm texture can hold a lot of dressing, so feel free to use it liberally. Massaging your kale with your hands is also a wonderful way to not only evenly incorporate each ingredient but also improve the digestibility of your kale.
    Finish with a few spirited twists of fresh cracked black pepper on top and enjoy!
