Mission Kale Salad with Aji Dressing

Author Notes: While visiting Old Scottsdale on a vacation, I tasted a delicious kale salad at the Mission Restaurant. I made a list of the ingredients, and upon arriving home , I tried to reproduce it as best as possible. While not identical, it is certainly a tasty rendition!leslie wilkof
