This is a beautiful and refreshing salad--a huge hit at our annual Christmas party. The celery is a sparkly addition to the kale, and the variety of flavors and textures make this one of the most sought-after dishes. I intend to do a version for Easter using a circle of carrots as well, and heaping the center bowl with deviled eggs. YUM!
