My family and I love this salad not just because of the nutritional value yet, because of the tenderness of the greens and the great taste of the salad this is why we really love this dish.  The other benefit is that it can go as a side dish or as a meal!  That is the versatility of this dish that you will enjoy.

Organic Kale Greens at least one pound
Soy or Tamari sauce to taste
3 to 4 Carrots
