This massive kale salad is life changing! I’m not always a fan of kale, but when its cut down and massaged with the right dressing, I can get down! Kale is high in fiber and filled with so many nutrients so I’m always trying to look for tasty ways to incorporate it into my diet. Enjoy! 🙂

    I did not have the sweet potato ribbons, so I thinly sliced carrots and topped them with agave and salt, air fryed them and they were delisshhhh. I am not usually a fan of tahini but the dressing was so good and the salad overall was amazing!!

    I LOVE this salad. I haven’t been eating enough greens since quarantine started. We were eating mixed greens with some generic salad dressing and it just got boring after a while. This salad is a game changer!! I’m not missing my favorite restaurants because this is high class. I didn’t go to Trader Joes so I just made sweet potato ribbons with a vegetable peeler and it worked out beautifully. Thank you so much!
