Kale is one superfood that will help keep you trim and fit. This marinated kale salad is just one delicious way to prepare this winter vegetable. Kale leaves are thinly sliced and marinated is a light vinaigrette flavored with lemon juice, olive oil, dijon mustard, and garlic. Kale is sturdier compared to other leafy greens so you don't need to worry about the salad becoming soggy before serving. For the final touch, add toasted pine nuts and pecorino romano cheese. If you want to turn this marinated kale salad into a full meal, add grilled chicken or tofu.
