Quick and Easy Sesame Kale Salad

Kale happens to be one of those super foods. It is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. It is high in antioxidants, fiber, vitamins A, C, K, B6, just to mention a few. It is one of those vegetables that we could and probably should eat every day.
When you buy kale, make sure the color is dark green and the leaves are fresh and crisp. The leaves should not be wilted.
We remove kale stock for this salad, as the stock is tough to eat raw.

I have a couple of other wonderful kale recipes on my website:
