Kale, Celery, + Fennel Salad

Author Notes: This wintry kale salad straddles the line between salad and slaw, and does so with finesse. It's hearty, bright, and can even hold its own in the fridge overnight. If I'm in the mood for heat (which is pretty much always) I like to serve with big pinches of red pepper flakes.
