Kale Salad

This was one of those throw together recipes that turned out amazing. Last night was girls night and we decided on a kale salad. We basically threw together what sounded good and LUCKILY it turned out awesome.

A few notes, for the kale I had some FRESH as in grown in my girlfriends backyard fresh, so having that was amazing. I also had a bag of kale from Trader Joe's that we used too. The coconut was an idea that I got from this recipe, and I was apprehensive about it, but it worked out great. For the chicken I grilled some boneless skinless chicken tenders coated with some olive oil, lemon pepper and a garlic and herb seasoning on my indoor grill pan and then sliced.

The key to this salad is to assemble and dress it all ahead of time and then let it sit in the fridge for 20 to 30 minutes. With kale being a heartier green it can really stand to soak up the dressing.
