It seems my friends make EVERYTHING with kale — salads, risottos, pastas, and even drinks. I go to my buddy Jessica's house once a week so that she can make sure I'm eating at least one meal that's not microwavable, and this time I stopped drinking wine long enough to document her incredible kale salad recipe.
