Notes

I am the author of The Trendy Vegan, a lifestyle blog for vegans for a lifetime (or just for a meal!) I joined a CSA this summer and had a gorgeous head of kale, and wanted to do something new with it. I also had some hummus and cannelini beans, both great sources of protein and totally vegan friendly, so I got creative. This dish is fresh and crisp and quite filling for a salad. I've remade it on numerous occasions, and am always happy to share delicious creations with others!
