1.  Hearty Kale Salad

A riff on the classic warm spinach-and-bacon salad, this recipe features thin ribbons of kale instead. Any variety of kale works, but flatter-leaf lacinato kale makes it extra-special.


  • 6 cups very thinly sliced kale (about ½ large bunch), tough stems removed (see Note)
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs (see Tip), coarsely chopped
  • 2 slices center-cut bacon
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1½ cups sliced button mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons whole-grain mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • Place Kale in a large bowl.
  • Cook Onion until soft.  Add mushrooms and cook for two minutes.  Add red-wine vinegar, whole-grain mustard and salt and pepper.  Pour over kale and bacon.
