This salad would be great for parties.  It’s vegan and gluten free.  Super healthy and tasty. This recipe calls for removing the stems from the kale.  Don’t throw them away.  You can save them for juicing or homemade vegetable broth.

I massaged the kale, so it’s much easier to eat.  I filmed a video about massaging kale if you want to check it out below.

    1. No. Just as much as I needed. :) The dressing recipe will keep in the fridge for several weeks. I also kept the dressing and salad separate so the salad would last the week in the fridge.
