  1. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  3. 1 Fresno chile—halved, seeded and thinly sliced
  4. 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  5. 2 1/2 pounds Tuscan kale, stems discarded and leaves coarsely chopped
  6. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  7. Kosher salt
  8. Shredded ricotta salata cheese, for serving
  1. In a deep skillet, heat the oil. Add the garlic, chile and crushed pepper and cook over moderately high heat, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the kale in large handfuls; let wilt slightly before adding more. Cook, tossing, until the kale is barely tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice; season with salt. Transfer to a platter, sprinkle with cheese and serve.
