06 Jul Recipe of the Week: Our Favorite Kale Salad
Kale has become the darling of the “greens” world in the past few years. It is no small wonder why, as it is one of the most nutrient dense foods available. Kale is a cruciferous vegetable that is packed with Vitamins A, K, B, and C as well as magnesium, potassium, copper, calcium, and manganese.
One of our favorite ways to prepare kale is in a fresh, summer-perfect salad. This salad is simple to make and includes other delicious and beneficial ingredients such as lycopene rich tomatoes, allicin filled garlic, and pine nuts which are a great source of iron. Our wonderful kale salad is a veritable bowl of health!
