Kale has a phenomenal nutrition profile with one cup providing 684% of the FDA Daily Value (DV) for vitamin K, 134% of the DV of vitamin C, and 206% of the DV of vitamin A, in addition to many other vitamins and nutrients. In this Tangy Kale Slaw, we combine kale with red cabbage, carrots and green onions tossed in a honey-lime vinaigrette for a flavorful finish with just the right amount of zing.
