  • 2 medium garlic cloves, chopped

  • Approx. ⅔ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  1. Pulse the garlic in a food processor until finely chopped, then add the kale, walnuts, and Parmesan cheese. Pulse until chopped, turning off periodically and removing the top to press the kale down toward the blade if necessary.
