Mexican Kale Salad

Mexican Kale Salad with a Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette. Loaded with black beans, corn and red bell pepper!

This Mexican Kale is the perfect lunch of Summer dinner. It’s loaded with fresh veggies and comes together in minutes!

I made this chopped kale salad without meat however you could always serve this with chicken, steak or fish.

I like to grill my corn or saute it before putting it on the salad. It adds so much more flavor!
