I really love this salad, although looking at the recipe it doesn't seem quite right: Mayonnaise dressing?
Somehow it's perfect, anyway. I have a little left over for lunch and I'm trying to figure out how to get it all for myself and not share with Dad. It's from the Arizona Daily Star. I'm putting a link to the whole article here, but it may not work for non-subscribers.
I substituted cotija cheese for the manchego. We always have cotija around and it's really useful for a garnish. It's sharp, salty, and crumbly, but not too assertive.
Also, I massaged the kale pieces with 1 teaspoon salt first to break up some of the tough fibers. I rinsed it and dried it before proceeding with the recipe.
