Kale, Fennel, and Beet Salad

Debra Allebach, a longtime vegetarian from Cornelius, N.C., loves cooking with farmers’ market produce—especially kale. “I’m known among my friends as a ‘kale connoisseur,’” says Allebach. “I bring different kale creations to all of my potlucks, barbecues, and get-togethers.” She suggests topping this crunchy salad with crumbled goat cheese or feta.
