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.

Harvest Kale Salad with Honey-Miso Dressing
I love dark winter greens, kale in particular. It's fabulous in hearty vegetarian stews, sautéed, or used in risotto. My favorite preparation, however, is in a salad. Tossed with a good dressing, it never wilts — in fact, I almost like it more the next day. This recipe was inspired by the number of colorful vegetables you can find in the dead of winter (yes, color does exist in a deep freeze). Rich butternut squash, possibly roasted with garlic and rosemary, tart dried cranberries, and buttery toasted nuts. You could also add caramelized onions, or roasted purple potatoes to the mix. And of course, a dusting of snowy, white cheese, if you're so inclined. Click here to see The Best Kale Recipes You've Ever Tried.
