Raw Kale Salad with Lemon, Pecorino and Currants (Serves 4)
courtesy of Saveur Magazine

In this simple, elegant salad, a staple of SAVEUR web editor Helen Rosner's table, the spicy flavor of thinly sliced raw kale is offset by creamy Pecorino cheese, bright lemon, and sweet-tart dried currants. You can substitute Parmesan or Grana Padano, if that's what's on hand.

1 or 2 bunches of very thinly sliced curly kale (tough stems removed)
3 tbsp. fresh lemon juice (from 1 lemon)
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
¼ cup dried currants
½ cup Pecorino-Romano cheese, finely shredded (about 2 oz.)
1 tsp. kosher salt
½ tsp. fresh-ground black pepper

  1. In a large serving bowl, combine all ingredients. Toss thoroughly to combine, and allow to rest 5-10 minutes. Toss thoroughly again before serving, adding more cheese, salt, or pepper, if desired.

Girl Meets dirt uses the highest quality, locally sourced, organic fruit, unrefined organic cane sugar, a squeeze of organic lemon, and classically prepares the preserves by hand in seasoned copper pans in their Orcas Island Kitchen! They don't use commercial pectin either, instead they rely on time and concentration for set.
