Servings 2


  • 1 small bunch kale stems removed & leaves chopped finely
  • 2 dozen Brussels sprouts trimmed & chopped finely 
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/2 small red onion chopped finely
  • 1 cup freshly (finely) grated Pecorino Romano cheese
  • 1-2 mandarin oranges peeled & segmented


  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste 


  • Prepare the dressing and set aside. Prep your kale and Brussels sprouts and add them to a large salad bowl. Toss with the dressing (this will helped soften the kale). I suggest playing with the quantities of the dressing ingredients to adjust to your personal taste. 
  • Prep the rest of the ingredients and add them to the salad bowl. Toss gently. 


  • This salad won't get soggy, so you can make it a few hours ahead. It still tastes good the next day, but it's not quite as good as it is freshly made. 
  • This is the newer model of the cheese grater I used for this recipe.
