Kale, kale kale ... you are probably just as tired of hearing about this trendy green as I am.
I get it - it's good for us. I've tried really hard to jump on this band-wagon but I'd just rather have spinach or arugula. I can't help it.
However, I found this recipe on Oh She Glows not long ago & I must say - it may have transformed my relationship with the superfood.
Weekend Glow Kale Salad Yield: 4 servings
Ingredients: 1/2 large head of kale (about 4-6 cups) 1 cup finely chopped red onion 1/2 red bell pepper 1/2-3/4 cup chopped carrot (2 small carrots) 1 English cucumber (2 cups chopped halves) 1 avocado, chopped 1 & 1/4 cup chopped grape tomatoes (or other variety) 1/2 cup mixed raisins and Goji berries 1/4 cup hemp seed 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
