Good kale is all in the preparation!! It really needs an acid - such as lemon juice or vinegar- and a good massage to break down the tough fibers and bitter flavor. This makes a huge difference in going from tough roughage to a fresh, nutrient packed, delicious salad.
This recipe uses olive oil, lemon juice, dijon mustard, salt, pepper, and garlic powder for the dressing. You can make a batch of the dressing and store it in the fridge.
