Sesame Ginger Kale Salad

This is a great lunch or dinner salad. It can get so big that you’ll be tired of chewing at the end of it. lol.

We actually make this pretty often for a great colorful salad to take for lunch at work.  This was definitely influenced by Traci, as kale isn’t always one of my go-to veggies. But being that this salad has so much flavor, I have yet to complain about it.
