It seems I often hear people say, "I don't like kale", or even (!) "I hate kale". When I hear this I can't help but think to myself, "oh my goodness, that is such a shame!!!" Kale can be so tasty, and it is easily one of the most nutrient-dense foods out there.
Nutrient dense = packed full of nutrients (vitamins and minerals and all sorts of other phytochemicals as yet unidentified) in a small amount of space.
So I offer this recipe up as a sort of challenge! :) Here is - what I think - a super simple, easy-to-make, nourishing, filling, and yes, tasty, kale salad recipe. I challenge you to make this at home, eat it, and then tell me that you still don't like kale. If I win, cool; if you win, still cool. You're entitled to your opinions :)
I call this a kale salad super meal because it has a well-balanced assortment of ingredients such that it turns out to be...a complete meal. By this I mean that this salad contains healthy fats, carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins, and minerals...all of the "nutrients" you should aim to consume in a meal, or at the very least, throughout the day.
The only other thing to add to this recipe would be to drink a full glass of room-temperature water about 10-30 minutes before eating (i.e. drink water while you're preparing the food).
Important note before you start: this salad requires use of Tuscan Kale!!!
