Both of these women have taught me more about kale salads than I ever realised one could know, and for that I am incredibly grateful.
If you want to know more about kale salads, definitely check out Kate's blog post on them here - she is something of a master of them.
All versions of the salad combine marinated kale with crumbled semi-soft cheese, toasted nuts and dried fruit.
Dried cherries and unsweetened cranberries are hard to find in the UK, and so I went for something a little old fashioned: prunes. I love prunes, but don't see them used in recipes these days, although dates and other dried fruits are very much in fashion.
If you haven't cooked with them for a while, give them another go. They're particularly delicious with blue cheese, and have a softness which distinguishes them from other dried fruits. —Stottey
