Red Kale Salad

Who says a salad has to be made with lettuce? Change it up with a delicious, colorful and packed with nutrients Red Kale. Kale is one of my favorite vegetables to eat. Not only does it taste delicious but it is also packed with vitamin K which helps fight various cancers and aids in the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease. Kale is high in iron, low in calories, a mere 36 per cup, is  filled with antioxidants, such as flavonoids and carotenoids which help protect us against various cancers, high in vitamin A for our eye health and skin and Kale also is a great detox food since it is filled with fiber and sulfur.

To make this salad I just took about 1 cup of red kale leafs and chopped them up. I took about 1/8 cup each of finely chopped red and orange peppers, 1/8 cup dried cranberries, pinch of salt, 1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese, 1 tablespoon olive oil and mixed them all together. Now, how easy is that?
