Crisp Kale Chips in Parmesan Vinaigrette

1 bunch Tuscan kale, trimmed and picked free of spine
Scant 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Juice of 2-1/2 lemons
2 ounces fresh Parmesan cheese, shredded with a microplane

1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Whisk about 1 tsp salt into fresh lemon juice to dissolve.
3. Whisk olive oil into lemon juice.  Proportions are approximately 1/3 lemon juice to 2/3 olive oil.  Stir in microplaned Parmesan and stir.  Dressing will thicken. 
4. Combine olive oil, lemon juice, and Parmesan. Toss kale leaves with 1/4 cup of vinaigrette (reserve remaining vinaigrette for another use) so that all leaves are lightly coated. 
5. Season with 1 tsp salt.
6. Shake excess vinaigrette from leaves.
7. Place leaves in single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. 
8. Bake until crisp, 6 to 8 minutes.  Watch carefully; cooking time is approximate and will vary with your oven temperature and amount of dressing on the kale.
