  5. Measure ½ cup oil into a cup. Stir almonds with 1 tbsp of oil from the cup in a small skillet over medium-high heat for about 2 minutes, until the almonds are golden brown
  6. Transfer nuts to paper towel-lined plate and sprinkle almonds lightly with salt.
  7. With the oil remaining in the cup, mix it into the original lemon-juice mixture. Season dressing with salt and pepper.
  8. Add dressing and cheese to kale mixture and toss until coated.  Season with salt and pepper and garnish with almonds.
