Mediterranean Inspired Kale Salad

Mediterranean Inspired Kale Salad - Supper With Michelle

 

A couple weeks ago, I met a girlfriend for lunch at the Cheesecake Factory restaurant and I ordered their Falafel Kale Salad. Well ever since then, I’ve been craving a Mediterranean Inspired Kale Salad.  This doesn’t have any falafels, but it is a fairly simply salad. I like to serve mine with a dollop of Hummus on the side and I also enjoy taking either store bought Pita Chips and crumbling them on top for a little crunch or serving warm Pita Bread on the side. You can also add some Chickpeas or even Bulgar Wheat into this salad for some different options.  The dressing is a pretty classic dressing and you can use either Lemon Juice or Red Wine Vinegar if you choose. This salad is best served fresh.
