Recipe Details


Whether she's whipping up a decadent pasta, roasting a whole chicken, or ordering pizza, Chef Liz makes sure there's a hearty salad on the table. Here, she tosses tender dinosaur kale with a creamy, tangy mustard vinaigrette, then adds tart dried cherries (one of her all-time favorite ingredients) and curls of shaved Parmesan. On top, smoky almonds add complexity and welcome crunch.
