Kale Salad

Bren Torres Blanco


Delish! I can eat this all day long. It is filling enough to eat as a main dish but does go great as a side or appetizer. It is very refreshing. Once you try it you’re hooked! As for the nutritional yeast, I strongly suggest adding it as it is loaded with nutrients that are good for you.

**NOTE: Nutritional yeast is NOT the same as brewers or baking yeast. Be sure to get Nutritional Yeast. It is yellow and flaky and has a cheesy flavor to it. It is high in vitamin B and has protein. It is also an inactive yeast so no need to worry about issues you might have with an active yeast...**
