Heat a small skillet on medium high heat. Spread the pine nuts in an even layer on the bottom of the pan, cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned. Then remove to a bowl to allow to cool. Watch carefully-they burn easily.
Use a sharp knife to cut out the tough midrib of each kale leaf and discard. Slice leaves crosswise into thin 1/4 inch wide slices. The easiest way to do this is to work with a small bunch of leaves at a time, stack leaves and roll them into a loose cigar shape. Then using a sharp knife, work from one end of the 'cigar' to the other, slicing a 1/4" off from the end. Place kale slices in a large bowl.
