Kale Salad With Chicken

Kale Salad With Chicken

This hearty kale salad is topped with chicken, tomato, and refreshing cucumber slices, and sunflower seeds for a nutty crunch.

It takes just a few minutes to make, so even people with busy schedules can find time to make this healthy kale salad recipe. Finish it with a squeeze of lemon or make this yummy lemon caesar dressing.

Pro Tip: Before adding the other ingredients, give your kale a “massage” by taking the leaves in both hands and rubbing them together. It sounds like a strange thing to do, but give it a try. It will make the leaves softer and give it a sweeter taste.
