Massaged Kale Salad Recipe

March 30, 2018

Easy to prepare and full of flavor and texture, this massaged kale salad will be a hit with the whole family. Mangoes add sweetness and vitamin C while the pepitas give it just enough crunch. Massaging the kale in oil and lemon juice helps tenderize the greens but if you're not a fan of kale, swap it for Romaine and skip the massage.
