Recipe Wednesday: Kale Salad with Avocado

Did you know one cup of chopped kale contains 33 calories and 9% of the daily value of calcium, 206% of vitamin A, 134% of vitamin C, and a whopping 684% of vitamin K? It is also highly alkaline and a good source of minerals such as copper, potassium, iron, manganese, and phosphorus. Here is a simple recipe for a delicious Kale Salad that’s easy to make. We recommend dressing it about an hour before you serve it to soften the kale.
