Fried Egg & Massaged Kale Salad with Cheese Crisps

This salad showed up in the side bar of the website I'm using to track my calories in an effort to be more healthy. It didn't have too many ingredients and looked pretty easy to make, which made it perfect for a week night dinner.

Recipe from My Fitness Pal.

-5 tablespoons parmentino cheese, grated
-1 head kale, stems removed, leaves thinly sliced
-3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
-1 tablespoon olive oil
-1 clove garlic, minced
-1 teaspoon whole grain mustard
-1/8 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
-2 fried poached or sunny side up eggs, for serving
Separate the grated cheese into 1 tablespoon piles on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Bake at 400 degrees for 5 to 8 minutes .

The cheese crisps should end up like this. 

In a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, mustard, and salt until well-combined.

Prepare the salad by adding the raw chopped kale to a medium-sized serving bowl and pouring the dressing over the kale, Use your fingers to massage the dressing into the kale leaves (this will slightly wilt the kale).Add the cheese crisps and serve with a poached egg.

Dave and I both really enjoyed this salad. We actually made this twice, we served it along side some soup for dinner one night. The next day we enjoyed it as lunch on it's own. I like eggs with gooey centers, I think that the yolk added to the dish as a whole. The cheese crisps added a nice texture. And the dressing was well flavored.
