Place the kale in a large mixing bowl and squeeze half the lemon over it. With clean hands, mix up the kale and coat with lemon juice. Allow to sit for 30 minutes to an hour in the fridge to marinate.

In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil and yogurt. Mix the juice from the other half of the lemon, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, and mustard. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Pour the dressing over the kale, and toss until well coated. Top with persimmon slices, walnuts, and blue cheese. Serve.
