This Kale & Pancetta Salad is served warm…ever so slightly wilted, with bits of pancetta and anchovy, all tossed in a delicious kalamata vinaigrette. The healthy greens are then topped with a perfectly poached egg, coddled just right. That was a dish I knew I wanted to duplicate at home...so here it is! A huge thank you to Triniti Restaurant for this delicious kale salad recipe! Dinner at Triniti was wonderful. Executive Chef Ryan Hildebrand and his team shine!
