Today we’re going to take Greek salad to the next level with the addition of kale. It’s going to add so much texture and nutritional benefits to the salad.

How to Make Lemon Olive Oil Dressing

How to Make Greek Kale Salad
Making this salad is very easy, just chop up everything and toss it all together with your lemon olive oil dressing which is just a combination of 2 part olive and 1 part fresh lemon juice (you can also use vinegar or lime juice). You can also add chickpeas, olives, or bell peppers to the mix.
I suggest marinating the salad in the dressing and letting it soak for at least 30 minutes, this will allow the kale to soften slightly and lessen some of its bitterness.
