Kale Take Two

Leafy salad greens may be at a seasonal low, but kale is just reaching its peak. With its dark green (or red or black) deeply textured leaves and distinctive taste, kale adds dramatic color and flavor to the winter plate. Chefs are taking advantage of the vegetable's rustic appeal and nutritional value in a variety of inventive preps.
