Introduction

The only thing I hate more than throwing out leftovers is eating leftover saladÖ with the exception of this salad. It gets better everyday. Which makes kale my new vegetable of choice. Make it on Monday and its still crisp and flavorful on Friday. What more can a working girl want?

To be honest, Iím not a veggie person. I have to try real hard to work them into my diet. If I had my way, there would be two food groups. Meat and bread. But, recently Iíve discoverd a veggie that I canít live without. How on earth did I get through the first four decades of my life without discovering kale? I used to think of this as a slimy bitter green. Iíd pass over it on menus, skip by it in the salad bar. And never consider it in the produce section. But then I tried this salad. Now, kale is on the top of my grocery list. I buy two and three bunches at a time, and consume it all myself.
