Whenever I bring this salad to a gathering, I always get asked for the recipe. Give this a try and you'll see why!
Kale scores as having the highest antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer nutrients. It’s so good for the heart and lowers cholesterol plus supports the body’s detoxification process. This stuff should be in your diet regularly. It's easy to add to soups, stews and casseroles. Here is one of my favorite ways to eat this super food. Great tip to eating Kale is to chop it in the food processor into small pieces.
