This is now a classic kale salad, first published several years ago, back when kale salads were kinda new and weird. It’s still one of my very favorites for being simple, clean and bright, and just salty and rich enough to be memorable. It holds its own next to a beefy steak or humble roast…

Which is a shame, given the palate-cleansing powers of a tangy, acidic punch on a plate of buttery, rich foods.This recipe is as old school as I…

I’m always trying to find things to douse in Cedar Summit cream, because let’s face it, I’m obsessed with the gloriously grass-fed stuff.
