Ingredients

for the Parmesan crisps

  • 2 cups finely grated Parmesan cheese

for the dressing

  • ½ cup Greek/Plain yoghurt
  • ½ cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons anchovies minced
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • salt & pepper to taste

for the salad

  • 4 cups fresh kale trimmed and roughly chopped
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • pinch of salt
  • cooked chicken cubed
  • avocado sliced

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 220ºc and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Form the Parmesan cheese in 6 circles, 5cm apart, and place in the oven.
  • Allow to bake until melted, golden and crisp.
  • Remove and allow to cool.
  • To make the dressing, combine all the ingredients and mix well.
  • Place the kale in a bowl and add the lemon, olive oil and salt. Massage well then leave to marinate for 10-30 minutes (longer than 30 might make the kale too soggy).
