Notes

Expert Tips

  1. Fry the bacon until crisp - that way the bacon won't get lost in the salad, but rather it will stand out.
  2. Chop the broccoli into small, bite sized pieces, to make the salad easier to eat.
  3. Remove the rib from the center of each piece of kale - trust me, you don't want to eat it!
  4. This salad will last for a couple of days in the fridge. Keep the dressing separate from the rest of the salad if you would like to keep it fresh longer.
