Created by Chef Billy

Kale is the new "it" vegetable, known to be super nutritious and high in Vitamin K which can reduce the risk of cancer (according to the American Journal of Nutrition).

This yummy creation features kale in a balsamic vinaigrette and with artichokes hearts and ricotta. When I first received the recipe it was written with a pinch of this and a touch of that. LOL. Thanks Chef Billy for providing more details to our WTJ readers!
