Gingery Asian Kale Salad

Kale salads are a great way to integrate this green superfood into your diet! Unfortunately, kale can often be too tough for salads, but this recipe is great for a lighter kale salad and easy to make. I also love that you can leave this salad overnight with the dressing already mixed without the kale getting soggy, but rather it marinates and tastes even better the following day. This Asian kale salad is also great with cold and flu season approaching since it contains a good amount of garlic and ginger, both heating foods that can help detoxification.

Garlic specifically is known for its potent antibacterial and antiviral properties, digestive aid, and anti-inflammatory. Ginger is also anti-inflammatory and acts as a digestive aid, and is antibacterial and stimulating circulation. Also, for added protein, this salad is great with grilled or shredded chicken!
