Kale Summer Salad

The only thing I hate more than throwing out leftovers is eating leftover salad… with the exception of this kale salad. It gets better everyday. Which makes kale my new vegetable of choice. Make it on Monday and its still crisp and flavorful on Friday. What more can a working girl want?
