Raw Kale and Apple Salad

OK, so we are back to kale again, love these salads, and the many varieties of kale and toppings to combine them with.
After we had the salad I thought the addition of toasted nuts would make this salad even better.

1 large bunch kale, washed and center rib removed
Raw Kale and Apple Salad
1 small shallot, minced
3 Tablespoons + 1 teaspoon olive oil
3 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon honey
1 green apple, diced
1 cup Asiago cheese, grated
Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
optional: 1/2 cup nuts, toasted

Chop kale into thinly sliced ribbons and put in a salad bowl. Add 1 teaspoon olive oil and pinch of salt and massage it into kale.

To make dressing, combine shallot, 1 Tablespoon olive oil, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, and honey in a small bowl.

Add apple to kale and toss with salad dressing. Add most of cheese, sprinkle with salt and pepper and toss again; check seasonings. Top with remaining cheese and serve.
