Kale — it’s a four letter word for many people. In my opinion, kale has gotten a bad rap. It is one of the healthiest things you can eat. It’s full of nutrition and fiber. What could be better for your health? I read recently that the average person eats about 1 cup of kale every 10 years — or some outrageous fact like that. That is crazy! Kale is one of the cruciferous vegetables (others include broccoli, cauliflower, Brussel sprouts, arugula, cabbage, and bok choy ) which are about the healthiest things you can eat. They lower your risk of getting cancer and heart disease. I encourage even the people leery of anything kale to try this salad. It is very flavorful and it has great tastes and textures. It really is a power salad.
