  • 4 cups sourdough bread cut into rough cubes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 head radicchio core removed and shredded
  • 1 bunch lacinato (dinosaur) kale stems removed and shredded
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese freshly grated
  • 3/4 cup dried cherries can sub dried cranberries

For the dressing:


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Transfer the sourdough bread cubes to a baking sheet and drizzle/toss in olive oil. Bake for 7-10 minutes or until slightly crunchy.
  • Prepare the salad by slicing the radicchio and kale into thin cuts. Add them to a mixing bowl with the cheese and dried cherries. In a separate bowl, whisk together the olive oil, honey, lemon juice, lemon zest, and sea salt.
  • When the croutons are ready, add them to the mixing bowl and pour the dressing on top. Mix until coated. Enjoy!


  • If you are making this recipe in advance, store the salad and dressing in separate airtight containers in the fridge. Wait to add the dressing until right before serving.
  • For additional protein, added shredded chicken or turkey, edamame, or white beans.
