Kale and Radicchio Salad with Broken Caesar Dressing

Made without egg for binding, this perfectly balanced dressing, generous with anchovies, goes together in a hurry and has a rustic look. Try it on kale and radicchio, as we've done here, or with more bitter chicories the way Ethan Stowell serves it at Staple & Fancy Mercantile in Seattle.

  • Yield: Serves 8 (serving size: 2 cups)
  • Total:20 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 8 anchovy fillets, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • About 3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 pound curly kale, ends and tough ribs trimmed, cut crosswise into 1-in. ribbons
  • 1/2 pound radicchio, cut crosswise into 1-in. ribbons

Preparation

1. Whisk anchovies, garlic, lemon juice, oil, 2 tbsp. water, the salt, and pepper in a very large bowl. Don't worry that the dressing doesn't emulsify; it will come together more when you add the cheese.

2. Add 3/4 cup parmesan and the greens and mix with your hands. Set salad on plates. Add more parmesan if you like.
