Black Kale Salad with Red Quinoa, Smoked Almonds, Ricotta Salata, and Egg

We know, we know. We’re well aware that we’re recommending a kale and quinoa salad as the must-have dish in a neighborhood that also contains Ample Hills ice cream and the homemade beef jerky at Vanderbilt. But, bear with us, because this salad is the kind of dish worth traveling any distance for. The fresh bitterness of the kale is complemented well by the nuttiness of the quinoa and smoked almonds, and the tangy ricotta salata cuts through the richness of the poached egg to strike a perfect flavor balance. And there’s the added bonus of feeling virtuous for ordering a kale salad, all the while knowing you’re about to indulge in one of the most decadent dishes you’ve ever had.
