Kale Salad with Ricotta Salata
Wash and trim the stems off two large handfuls of kale. Chop into confetti-like strands as shown.

Shred a boatload of ricotta salata on top, add about 1 tablespoon of red onion that has been sliced to the point of transparency.

Add a few glugs of olive oil, a squeeze of lemon, and freshly ground pepper.
