About this recipe
A simple warm salad that has similarities to a panzanella but with more autumnal ingredients. Massaging the kale (I know it sounds pretentious) will bring out the sweetness of this nutrient dense green which is packed with vitamins K, C and betacarotene .
You can also try making the crispy skins with parsnip or butternut squash peels. I’ve used white radicchio (slightly less bitter than red) but try rocket, watercress or even finely chopped spinach.
