Baby Kale Salad with Peach Tea and Sesame Dressing

By Marge Perry & David Bonom
This lovely salad is as delicious as it is good for you. The peach tea dressing is just fruity enough to stand up to the kale without overwhelming it. And we love this dressing that delivers such great flavor with so little oil!
