The green, minerally flavor of kale pairs well with sharp lemon, briny olives and funky Pecorino cheese. We rub the grated lemon zest with a little salt to fully extract the fragrant essential oils. This gives the salad extra brightness and a flavor reminiscent of preserved lemons. We like pecorino Romano, but Parmesan works nicely, too. Serve this salad as a side, or pile it on cooked rice or quinoa for a satisfying light main.

Don’t serve the salad immediately after tossing. Let it stand for about 15 minutes so the kale softens a bit and the flavors meld.
