Kale Salad with Bacon and Almonds
I've been obsessed with kale salad for a while now, ever since the revelatory version at New York's City Bakery. The reason to eat raw kale? It stands up really well to hearty salad ingredients like bacon, pancetta, nuts, Kalamata olives, big chunks of blue cheese (mmm), or orange and apple slices. Because the leaves can be thick and slightly abrasive, I like to dress the salad much earlier than I would more delicate greens so that it has time to wilt a bit in the dressing.

Kale Bean Soup
 I love kale, but sometimes all the chewing it requires makes me put off using it. To avoid that jaw-aching task, I put my beloved food processor to work.  Paired with some spices, this dish similarly resembles the creamy Indian spinach dish known as Saag. Note:  Canned beans actually work well in this recipe because they tend to be a little undercooked. If cooking your own beans, keep them on the firm side, which will lend a nice consistency switch-up to the creamy soup.

Kumquats are best around this time of year, and they add an amazing tartness to the salad, while ricotta salata adds some creaminess.— Executive Chef Alex Resnick

Mediterranean Kale Soup Recipe
The heartiness provided by the kale and lentils brings "comfort" right into this soup and packs in a great amount of energy. I think most of the spices and amounts of garlic can be modified to suit your own tastes, which is why this soup can be so versatile. You could even add chicken stock if you just can’t go without and I think it would turn out great!
