In addition to the kale, my coworker also gave us a big bag of loose leaf lettuce that she grew. I came across a recipe over on dine and dish that looked really interesting, and I had just the right amount of roasted red peppers leftover from when I made chicken a la king to use up. This dressing is rich and creamy - it's kind of like a thousand island. It was pretty sweet, so it's not a dressing I'd use every day, but it was nice on this super fresh salad. It was good, but not something I'll probably make again.
