RECIPE BACKSTORY
This recipe began as the Esalen Kale Salad (google) but our chef didn't have nearly enough kale to make the recipe work as stated. Creative and devoted to using local produce as she is, our chef supplemented with a bumper crop bag of colored peppers. The salad was a serious hit at our potluck.
