Lacinato is a classic Italian variety of kale, also known as Tuscan Kale or Dino Kale.
Its earthy and slightly bittersweet flavor lends itself perfectly to salads, sautés, soups, casseroles, gratins, and smoothies. Try pairing it with a salty, strong cheese like Parmigiano or Manchego and a sweet dried fruit for a delicious and nutritious salad.
