At Superfoods on Main one of my specialty salads that I make weekly is our kale salad. This is an excellent refreshing salad that enables you to incorporate raw organic superfoods into your life.  You have kale (your dark leafy greens), hemp seed (protein, omegas, and antioxidants), and beautiful colorful healthful tomatoes.
