Kale and Apple Salad with Crisp Pancetta and Gouda

20 min
No holiday required for this family favorite salad. The flavor of Arla® Gouda snack cheese brings this salad alive.

Instructions

  • In a skillet, heat the oil and cook the pancetta until crisp, about 4 minutes. Drain and set aside. Add the pan dripping to the salad bowl and whisk in vinegar, salt and pepper. Blanch the kale quickly by simmering in salted water, about 1 minute. Immediately shock in cold water, drain and tear into bite size pieces. Toss with radicchio, apples, chives and tarragon. Mound the salad on serving plates and sprinkle with pancetta and pieces of Arla® Gouda snack cheese.
