It's high in vitamins, more nutritious, denser than lettuce, more filling, and delicious. A friend at work told me about it and let me sample her very simple kale, feta, pine nuts, and dressing salad. I was very pleasantly surprised. I am excited about salads again! Oh, kale keeps longer too!
If you like crunchy, fresh lettuce that will keep in your refrigerator for at least 1 week, try this tip. Buy you a Foodsaver from Costco, buy a dozen wide mouth mason jars from Walmart, and order a wide mouth sealer from Foodsaver (about $8.00) I like to buy Romain Lettuce in bulk, chop it into bite size, wash and spin, pack in jars and seal. The lettuce will stay dry, and super crunchy. A money saver and a super easy way to make a wonderful salad.
