Inspired by the classic kale & avocado salad, this dish was a hit in New York when I made it, almost on a daily basis, for everyone at The Plant. (Postscript: The Plant is no longer open.)
Chipotle peppers are jalapenos that have been smoked, and so are not raw. However, I love to use them as they have such a great taste and you don’t need to use many! I have provided an alternative combination of ingredients in the recipe as a substitute to using jalapenos that will give a similarly distinctive taste.
This is a really hearty meal with a kick that’s perfect for those cold winter days!
*If not using chipotle peppers, substitute with 1/2 teaspoon each of onion powder, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder and tamari (or nama shoyu).
