Kale Salad

Welcome 2013! January is always the month that I eat the best.  I think it has more to do with the fact that I overdosed on chocolate and cheese, but soups and salads here I come!

I used the popular kale salad from Whole Foods as an inspiration for this and while not exact I think it is just as good.
