Kale and Sweet Potato Taco Salad – Vegetarian


Finally, a kale salad that is definitely worth writing home about! I will be honest, I had low expectations of this, but it was great, really fun and enjoyable to eat. IMG_2456

I think there were 2 key points, how well massaged the kale was and the crunch of the tortilla chips.IMG_2452

The big surprise was how well the avocado and sweet potato went together.
