Author Notes: I created this Kale, Artichoke and Pecorino Salad the other day with ingredients I had in the house as a side dish for company. Everyone just loved this dish! Adding the Pecorino right before serving gave the salad and extra flavor that made this dish very yummy!! Give it a try! You can omit the cheese to keep it Paleo!

Note: This can be done up to 2 hours before serving! Refrigerate covered until ready to serve. Enjoy
Cooks Tip! If you are using Pecorino cheese you can use less sea salt. Pecorino is a salty cheese. To learn more about Parmesan vs Pecorino please visit my blog post at Parmesan vs Pecorino

Serves: 4

  • 3-4 sliced pancetta
  • Olive oil
  • 1 can artichokes, quartered and drained
  • 1 bunch kale, chopped
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup pecorino cheese, freshly grated
  1. Take panchetta and chop. Heat a saute pan over medium heat and add in 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Saute pancetta until crisp – about 7 minutes. Using a slotted spoon remove pancetta and place on a plate lined with a white papertowel.
  2. Using the saute pan over medium heat add in artichokes and cook for 2 minutes on each side. You really just want them to brown a little. Remove from pan and set on a plate.
  3. In a large bowl or serving platter add chopped kale, Then add in artichokes and pancetta. Drizzle with olive oil (about 3 tablespoons) then add lemon juice, salt and pepper. Toss together. Using your Edgeware grater top with Pecorino cheese.
