Chef Rick Edge of Balboa Cafe Mill Valley shares his kale slaw recipe with the masses. If you can’t make it to the restaurant to get your fix, like LA resident and fan Lisa Miller, we have you covered with a simple at-home recipe.
Dear SOS: I am in love with the kale slaw from Balboa Cafe in Mill Valley, Calif. That dish was actually what turned me on to kale, but I can’t find a salad as good. I love visiting Northern California and especially going to Balboa Cafe for the kale slaw. So I can also enjoy it at home, do you think you can get the recipe? Lisa Miller
