Kale “Wedge” Salad

The Delightful Kale "Wedge" SaladI do love kale. There’s something about the toothsome bite of it that makes me feel like I’m eating something a bit more substantial than a salad. Though a traditional “Wedge” Salad is made with iceberg, I wanted something with a little more nutritional value, and kale fit the bill. The mild bitterness is beautifully complemented in this dish by the creamy blue cheese and salty prosciutto.
