Kale Salad at Northern Spy Food Co.
This kale salad is made with raw lacinato kale, crumbled Cabot clothbound cheddar, roasted squash, toasted almonds, and pecorino. Don't be afraid of the raw kale—the bright greens feel wholesome (even dressed up in cheese), but they've relaxed enough in the dressing to not require too much chewing.
