Kale, Artichoke and Tomato Salad

DSC_0394

This salad is light, fresh, and packed with nutrients. I made this kale, artichoke and tomato salad as a side, but you could easily add a protein source like chickpeas and turn it into a delicious meal. This recipe would also compliment a grain salad well.

If you purchase kale but find that it goes limp before you have a chance to use it, submerge it in water for about a day to rehydrate it. (Re-hydration time may vary)
