With glazed onions, dried cherries, pine nuts, and crunchy kale, the flavor of this salad is as bright as its colors.
|1 bunch curly kale (8 ounces) curly, tough ribs and stems removed and discarded, leaves very thinly sliced||2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce|
|1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice||1 teaspoon sugar|
|2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil||1 tablespoon cider vinegar|
|1/8 teaspoon salt||1/3 cup dried tart cherries|
|8 ounces frozen pearl onions, thawed||1/4 cups pine nuts (pignoli)|
|1 tablespoon butter or margarine||2 ounces extra-sharp white Cheddar cheese (1/2 cup) shredded|
In large bowl, toss kale with lemon juice, oil, and salt and pepper; set aside.
In 12-inch skillet, combine pearl onions, butter, 1 tablespoon water, Worcestershire sauce, and sugar. Cook on medium heat 8 to 10 minutes or until onions are tender and most of the liquid has evaporated, stirring occasionally.
Add vinegar to skillet. Increase heat to medium-high. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until onions are browned. Add remaining 1 tablespoon water. Cook 1 minute longer, swirling pan constantly. (Onions can be refrigerated, covered, up to overnight.) Transfer onions to bowl with kale.
To kale, add cherries and pine nuts; toss vigorously to combine. Add cheese; toss. Transfer to serving platter.
