Just before going home to Texas, I decided to clean out my refrigerator. Finding fresh kale, half an avocado, artichoke hearts, roasted asparagus, sliced apple, tomatoes and smoked duck breast, I knew I could pull something delicious together. I decided on salad. I began by marinating raw kale in lemon juice, spanish olive oil and and pecorino romano. While the kale softened, I quartered and sliced a small mountain of vegetables. After a quick toss in my salad bowl, I piled my chunky salad onto a small white plate. With toothsome kale, sweet apple, creamy avocado and smoked duck, it was satisfying, but certainly not for the faint of heart. Cleaning out the fridge has never tasted so good.
