Author Notes: Kale is supposed to be the best possible green to put into your body, and according to, I don't know, Instagram, it will make you into a superhuman beach goddess. This has yet to happen to me. And I'm thinking it may have something to do with all of the cheese and the bacon I add to said kale? Please advise. Will forgo divinity if it means I get to keep eating this salad.Kendra Vaculin

For the salad:

  • 2 cups Brussels sprout ribbons (about 6 Brussels sprouts, chopped width-wise to create ribbons)
