I’m going to start by saying this salad is heavily inspired by the version on Smitten Kitchen I tried many years ago and became obsessed with. Over the years I’ve made my own small tweaks, shortcuts and ended up with what I’m sharing with you all today.
When I’m hosting and want something sophisticated, green forward and crave-worthy- I find myself making this. I prepare everything separately and right before serving- toss it all together. I always get so many compliments on this because of the well rounded out flavors!
Tuscan Kale holds up really well so even if you chop it up a few hours ahead of serving- it won’t get all wierd and gross like iceberg or romaine. The breadcrumbs add a delicious crouton like experience and the grapes burst in your mouth to give you that juicy brightness that can be much needed with a more indulgent meal.
Leave any questions or comments on the post and I’ll answer!
