All Hail to the Kale (Salad)

I’m always searching for ways to make salad (and kale) more fun and tasty and I hit the jackpot with this one! Double whammy! When John Paul and I go out to eat, I try to recreate the foods we love at restaurants. We were recently in Southern California and enjoyed this amazing salad that I had to recreate, very simple ingredients with A LOT of flavor! I love salads that are mainly plant based with a little protein to keep me full longer. Try it out and leave a comment on my Facebook page and let me know how you enjoyed it!
