Massaged Kale Salad

Okay so I know I’m not exactly new on this kale trend. In fact I’m far far behind. My problem with kale has always been how bitter and tough it is- I swear anyone who likes it is lying through their teeth…

Anyhow, massaged kale totally changed my mind about the dark green “health food”. My sister suggested this as a side salad for dinner one night and I reluctantly agreed. But to my surprise I really liked the salad! Tossing the kale with a little oil totally changes the texture and fast – I love it. If you’ve been hesitant to jump on the kale train try this and let me know what you think!
