  • Remove the kale leaves from the stems, and place in a stack on your cutting board.
  • Using a sharp knife, slice into thin ribbons.
  • Place the kale ribbons into a large bowl, and add a few tablespoons of dressing (do not add all the dressing at once - this is far more dressing than you need for this recipe).
  • Using clean hands, massage the dressing into the kale. Add extra dressing as needed.
  • Toss the salad, and add grated Parmesan.
  • To serve, garnish with grated Parmesan, crispy chickpeas, and croutons.
