My beautiful daughter Chelsey, made this wicked Italian Spinach and Kale Salad Recipe the other night for my husband and I. It was outstanding! Just proving to my husband once again, that healthy can taste so incredibly good! Yes, that carnivorous husband of mine even loved it! In this case, I agree with my father, Joey Romano who always likes to say "I could make a meal out of that salad".
I know this may sound cliche but I have to say it....delicious and nutritious! Talk about an all-star line-up of super-foods all in one big bowl! (And I do not mean the Superbowl) lol.
Let me fill you in on the health benefits of this unique Italian salad recipe. The ingredients are amazing and they pack a very powerful punch! Chelsey's Kale salad recipe has it all including detoxing properties! It even has beets and you cannot beat all good stuff in them! Don't even get me going on how healthy dates and extra virgin olive oil are for you!
