Best Ever Shredded Kale Salad

Best Ever Shredded Kale Salad

This my friends, is the kale salad of your dreams -- and yes I know, thats not a sentence I ever thought I would type either. 

Something about the warmer temperatures has me craving all the green things so I whipped up this salad with everything I already had in my pantry. 

If you are not a kale lover, still give this one a chance! This is one of the best salad dressings I have ever created! It's light, tangy and a touch of sweet! 

Shredded, shredded brussel sprouts, hemp seeds, and toasted almonds makes this salad a total powerhouse!
