1Slice kale in very thin strips. I usually remove the ribs, but it's perfectly ok to keep them in there. It's prettier ribless. The method to thinly slicing kale is to roll several leaves up very tightly, like a fat cigar, and then slice with a very sharp knife.
2Chop garlic very finely & blend with juiced half lemon, olive oil & salt.
3Toss kale in the dressing.
4Refrigerate for at least an hour to let the kale soften with the salt.
