Nutritional Benefits to Eating Kale

Why is this called a Peruvian salad, well that is easy, my husband is from Peru and after eating this dish he said it tasted like a dish he grew up with. That nailed that name, so eating this dish will bring you the flavors of Peru. That is a good thing!

This is a super simple and fast recipe. If you are wondering, YES, my daughter loves it … so kid approved!
