I have to admit, I’ve never been the biggest kale fan. But over the year, I kept trying different recipes like Clean Eating Kale Chips and salad like this one. And I have to say that it’s growing on me. I’ve liked all the recipes I’ve tried, loved them even. But for some reason, kale is just never the first green I turn to. It’s just not on my mental radar I guess.
But hands down, this is the BEST kale dish I’ve ever made. I honestly could not get enough of this stuff. Maybe it’s the dressing that really makes it, but it’s one of the freshest salads I’ve ever made. It just really has that crisp, fresh, delicately sweet flavor that I look for in a salad.
So even though I don’t necessarily think about eating kale all the time, this salad may very well make it into my weekly rotation for a while. Man this was good! In fact, I think lunch is all worked out for today…
