I have the best kale salad for you to try.  

My neighbor asked me to bring it to her house for dinner with Dr. Mark Hyman on Monday. ( More on that to come!)

I gladly checked out the recipe she sent, from Epicurious.  I made a few changes to the dressing and voila!


Delicious kale goodness.  Packed with nutrients and lots of great flavors from the fun ingredients.
