Kale Salad Cups

 

Kale is known as a super food, but super foods can also be super delicious. This is so simple, so tasty, so healthy and so pretty. Since these do not have to be heated they make a great lunch to take to work. If you are Vegetarian you can exchange the chicken for chick peas.

  • 1 Cup lose packed baby kale
  • 2 Tbsp Apple cider Vinegarette
