Chef Finney’s Guest-Worthy Recipe: The Highway Kale Salad at Highway Restaurant & Bar in East Hampton

Why?

“This is a perfect salad for guests because it looks super colorful and is the healthiest chop salad you have ever had! The Asian-inspired vinaigrette adds great spicy flavor that comes from the fresh ginger. You can impress your guests with your amazing knife skills when you chiffonade all that kale. The soy in this recipe can be replaced with tamari and then it would be gluten free. The best part is that you can eat it with a spoon.”
