Kale & Peanut Salad

Houston's emerald kale salad recipe

Over the holiday I discovered a restaurant that apparently everybody and their brother has ate at except me.  Houstons.  A fine little establishment serving up the best Kale salad (and spinach dip) I’ve ever had.  It comes as a surprise to most people that I don’t really eat salads.  Everyone just assumes that because I don’t eat meat I live on greens.  But I’ve never really been a big fan. Well needless to say my take on the recipe has changed my mind.  Ate it yesterday, the day before yesterday, and I’m pretty sure I’ll be noshing on it around lunch time.  So without further ado, I give you my inspired version of Houston’s Kale Salad recipe.  Enjoy!  truly, MKR
