Ox & Angela's Sautéed Kale Salad

Ox & Angela is one of my favourite restaurants in the city.
 i've been for brunch, family style dinner, and then just to feast on multiple dishes as well.

while flipping through an old magazine (i seem to have a collection these days) and sipping on a warm mug of coffee i stumbled across a recipe, courtesy of my favourite restaurant.  that doesn't happen everyday, or really any day in my life.  i took it as a sign.  a good sign.
plus it's salad, so it's good for you, but secretly now i just want to go for brunch, especially on this dreary day.

mr handsome what do you say?  brunch o'clock?
