Raw Kale Salad with Chicken, Strawberries & Mint Vinaigrette

Have you fallen in love with kale yet? Oh we have and then some. We've been finding all kinds of ways to enjoy it. Our favorite way to enjoy kale is definitely roasted with some good curry flavors.

But for a main dish we made this wonderful Raw Kale Salad with Chicken, Strawberries and Mint Vinaigrette with Pistachios. (yeah, yeah it's way too long of a title we know.) It's great as lunch, a hearty starter or a light main course.

The flavors of avocado, strawberry and mint totally compliment the bitterness of the raw kale. And pistachios create that toasty crunch to pull it all together.
