Whenever I visit Los Angeles, I eat at Plate. Love the place. A few weeks ago, the waiter recommended their special: a raw kale salad. “Um, oookay,” I said. I wasn’t too sure I’d like it. But as with everything on their menu I’ve tried, it was delicious. In fact, I loved it so much that I replicated it (to the best of my memory) at home tonight.
Wash and drain kale, then rip it into bite-sized pieces and place in a bowl;
Sprinkle with dried cranberries, walnuts, and chopped apple;
Add chicken breast (cut up);
Drizzle with orange vinaigrette (I used this recipe).
Yum. Can’t wait to eat it again for lunch tomorrow.
Have you ever tried to replicate a recipe from a restaurant? Did it work?
