Cherries are everywhere now and they'll just as quickly disappear when their short season ends. I bought so many at the market I've been stewing them down into sauces, blending them into smoothies and tossing them into this kale salad.
It's such a simple recipe and one that will do just fine served as leftovers. The ripe cherries burst in your mouth and the walnuts provide a nice crunch. Shaved grana parma will make the salad elegant for a dinner party but if you want to keep it dairy-free it’s great without it. Make sure to give your kale a good massage with the vinaigrette, this breaks it down and yields a tender texture. If your cherry season has already ended, swap the cherries for fresh peaches.
