This was a salad we had last week with the Rosti. Although it is mostly a typical cheese, fruit, nut salad, I thought I would post it because of the raw kale. Who knew you could eat a green like that raw and that it would still taste good?!?
You do need to take some extra care to remove all the stems. But I just love eating a hearty green like this in the winter. It is a nice change from a regular lettuce salad. Also, I love pears! Try this one! In fact this whole meal was amazing.
