Description

A wonderful summer combination, this recipe is great for those days when you don't have a lot of time but you want something healthy and satisfying. Slivers of nectarine, salty ricotta salata, and crunchy toasted walnuts go perfectly with torn Lacinato kale. Dress the salad with a little champagne vinaigrette and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. 

Get Started
Step 1

In a large bowl, toss the kale with the vinaigrette to coat. With a microplane, grate a generous amount of ricotta salata onto the kale. Toss again, working the cheese and dressing into the kale. Add the nectarines and walnuts. Taste.
