Kale Salad with Pinenuts, Currants and Parmesan

 
Kale Salad with Pinenuts, Currants and Parmesan
20

In a surprising twist, Tuscan kale is served raw—and makes for a substantial and satisfying fall salad. Sweet currants (or raisins) soaked in tangy white balasmic vingegar and salty parmesan punctuate the dressed, shredded kale.

Very tasty and a nice change of pace from a typical green salad. Added a teaspoon of sesame oil and a few dashes of cayenne pepper to the dressing. Also didn't have currants so we used raisins instead which substituted well.
