DON's Dishes: Parm Panko Kale Salad

Food photographer, I am not, however I'm so in love with this kale dish I wanted to share. I tend to create really bizarre dishes and this is no exception so I may be the only person who likes it. That said, I eat this salad probably one night a week. Sometimes more.  It is just so easy and fresh. My recipe includes Gomasio, which is just black sesame seeds and sea salt combined into a bottle; I happen to have it around, but regular sea salt would be fine.
For one big salad:
1/2 bunch of kale, washed and torn into pieces, stems discarded
1 t Olive Oil (or more to taste, I like to start very light)
1/4 C panko breadcrumbs
1/8 C fresh Parmesan powder
1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 t Gomasio
red pepper flakes, to taste

Place kale in a large bowl and lightly drizzle with olive oil. If you still have some water on the kale from washing, that will help cut calories but create the stickiness needed. Throw in all remaining ingredients, mix with your hands (it's messy, but easiest), and enjoy! I really love the crunch of the panko and kale, the light spice of the pepper flakes, and the tangy parm flavor. Let me know if you try this one!
