In a surprising twist, Tuscan kale is served raw—and makes for a substantial and satisfying winter salad. Be sure to choose bunches of Tuscan kale with small leaves, which are more tender. I adapted the recipe from one I found in this month's "Bon Appétit" (February 2009). It's by acclaimed chef Dan Barber, of New York's famous Blue Hill restaurants. Allow the currants to marinated for at least a few hours. After that, this dish takes minutes to throw together.
