If you’ve been to Campo and tried the kale salad, you probably asked yourself: This is healthy? Featuring kale, the darling superfood, you can rest assured this salad will please just about everyone — from foodies to folk with less discriminating tastes. 

If the mention of kale makes you squirm, you’re not alone: The superfood, while full of amazing health benefits, has a reputation due to its super crunchy texture and woody flavor.

But it turns out, when combined with the right ingredients and prepared the right way, kale can make an ordinary salad, completely extraordinary. 

Just ask Campo’s Mark Estee.

He shared his popular kale salad recipe with us. And now we share it with you.
