I’ll be honest here: Kale was not one of my favorite vegetables. It is, however, a nutritional powerhouse loaded with vitamins, minerals, essential amino acids and fiber, making it very worthy of consumption. Because of the nutritional benefits, I used to just throw kale in my smoothies to make sure I was getting it in my diet. Then I started adding a little to my salads, adding more each time. It grew on me, and now I love it. This salad is one of my favorite ways to eat kale now. The strong garlic flavor in the dressing complements the greens very well.
