The beauty of kale salad is that the leaves don’t wilt, making it something you can make ahead of time and pack for lunch or dinner. Once made into a salad, kale holds for a couple of days, and the flavours and texture are actually enhanced. The mango and red peppers add a nice sweetness and extra vitamin C. If you’re looking for more protein, toss in a can of chickpeas for a vegetarian friendly protein option.
