Ingredients

  • 1 good-sized bunch kale any variety (10 to 12 leaves or so)
  • 1 1/2 cups thinly sliced radicchio or red cabbage
  • 2 medium bosc pears quartered lengthwise, cored, and sliced
  • 2/3 cup chopped pecans or walnuts lightly toasted if desired
  • 2/3 cup dried cherries cranberries, or raisins
  • 1/2 cup store-bought fruity vinaigrette pomegranate, raspberry, etc. plus more to pass around
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Strip the kale leaves away from the stems (kitchen shears are good for this). Discard the stems, or slice them very thinly.
  • Cut the kale leaves into narrow strips or bite-sized pieces. Rinse well and pat or spin dry. Place in a large bowl.
  • With a little olive oil rubbed into your palms, massage the kale for a minute or less, until it becomes bright green and softens a bit.
  • Combine the kale with the remaining ingredients in a serving bowl. Toss together well. If time allows, let the salad stand for an hour or so before serving to allow the kale to marinate.
  • Pass around extra dressing when serving.
