I got to admit, I don't like the taste of kale. I just don't. I do know it's considered a superfood and one of the beneficial vegetable on the planet. Since I don't like the taste of kale, I decided to play around with it and see if there are other ways that would taste better than just raw. So I sautéed it. Turned out like chips, crunchy. Check it out! Oh, and don't forget the blueberries. They are in season now, and give this salad sweetness. They also add a boost of vitamin C to this salad and contain calcium which is good for maintaining healthy bones. The pumpkin seeds are good to snack on or in a salad, like this one. Because of the large content of magnesium in these seeds, they benefit your blood and can help prevent heart attack, stroke and cardiac arrest in the future.
