Why am I making a chicken kale recipe salad?
Because I love kale as much as spinach! Maybe more.
I did some research before writing out this recipe. I found some things that made me love it even more. For example: it has lots of iron and calcium. It also has vitamins A, C, and K. And it’s high in fiber and no fat.
While all that info is really interesting, it's not the reason why I eat lots of kale...
I love kale because it TASTES GREAT!!!
So enjoy this!
