The “queen of greens”….Kale this, kale that! There is a craze over kale. And all for a good reason. Check out the facts. One cup of chopped kale contains:
- 33 calories
- 9% of the daily value of calcium
- 206% of vitamin A
- 134% of vitamin C
- 684% of vitamin K
- Good source of copper, potassium, iron, manganese, and phosphorus.
I found a refreshing salad that adds root vegetables to what would just be a normal kale salad. In this recipe you use shredded kale, carrots, whole pecans, grated turnips and grated rutabaga.
All tossed together with a tangy lemon dressing. The dressing is super easy to make. It’s just lemon zest, olive oil, lemon juice, soy sauce and agave nectar.
