Orange and Kale Salad

Orange and Kale Salad
“Our orange and kale salad is a beautiful combination of unique ingredients,” says Samir Da Silva, assistant general manager of San Diego’s Fogo de Chão Brazilian steakhouse. “Fresh kale is mixed with julienned red onions and segmented oranges. The bitterness of the kale is then balanced with a light honey-and-citrus dressing. The crisp red onions complement the salad’s texture, adding a flavorful crunch. Orange segments perfect the finish. As one of the restaurant’s most popular seasonal items, this salad is a refreshing experience.”
