Dinosaur Kale Salad

SAVE ✓ SAVED ADD TO MEAL PLAN PRINT VIEW IN SPANISH

What makes this kale salad our absolute favorite is 1) the fact that it’s all chopped up like confetti, making it easy to eat, and 2) the sweet and salty tastes that you get with every bite! Don’t worry if you can’t find dinosaur kale, it works well with other kale varieties! It’s clear that grown ups love this recipe, and we have found that kids can easily learn to like this too! This is a featured recipe from our Preschool Food Adventure.
