Kale Walnut Salad – Keto Low Carb Recipe

Kale is great for ketogenic dieters. It is pretty low carb in small amounts making it a great delivery system for some yummy olive oil and nuts. Massaging the kale is key to a great kale salad. It breaks down the fibers and makes it much softer and easier to chew. It pairs well with our Grilled Marinated Flank Steak with Chimichurri.
