Every time I go to San Diego for Sports Medicine Acupuncture training, I eat lunch every day at Ocean Beach People's Food Coop. Their deli is an homage to California vegetarian food - the cuisine that started the "fad" for healthy, fresh, plant-based dishes that is so popular everywhere now. When you go to People's you know that you can get fresh whole-food vegan meals, with plenty of vegetables. One of my favorite dishes to see available in their deli case is the Almond Kale Supreme.. it is a rich, creamy kale salad with plenty of crunch! It goes with just about everything, and I simply can't resist it whenever it is there. The people at People's were kind enough to share their recipe for Almond Kale Supreme, I hope you enjoy it too!
p.s. the cooler weather is the perfect time to use kale.. it gets sweeter when it's colder out!
Slightly obsessed with OB People's Coop? My bumper sticker :)
