Creamy Kale Salad

A simple kale salad that hits the spot on a summer evening.

I’m trying to use kale more in my cooking as its one of the healthiest plant foods in existence. Nutrient dense with a large portion of the fat in it is an omega-3 fatty acid called alpha linolenic acid.

Full of minerals which are generally lacking from a modern diet including calcium and potassium.
