1) Yes, you can make a raw kale salad with curly kale! It may not be as lovely and delicate as the kale salads made with lacinato kale, but when living in a small town, one must make do with what the market has to offer. I have yet to find lacinato kale around these parts, so until then, it’s curly kale. A little chewy and very green, it satisfied a long-standing curiosity I had about raw curly kale in salad.
2) Russet potatoes are the potatoes to use for oven fries. I have been foolishly misled all these years. No more Yukon Golds as oven fries. It’s starchy Russets from here on out, with their delightfully crispy exteriors and soft, creamy interiors.
Hope your weekend was lovely, friends.
