It's been a very good year for kale salads.

Welcome to 100 Dishes to Eat Now, the tasty countdown leading up to our "Best of 2012" issue. Tune in each day (weekends too!) for a new dish from the Fork in the Road team.

Grilled Kale & Escarole Salad $14 (with eggs $19), dish #9

Peter Hoffman's Back Forty West serves an excellent kale salad. Add two eggs to these crisp leaves of grilled kale and juicy escarole, fried capers, and crunchy chickpeas coated in a creamy, Caesar-style dressing, and the salad can become a very satisfying meal. It may be simple, but once crowned with anchovies and Parmigiano, it rules over many of the renditions we've tasted this year.
