Green’s Sweet and Spicy Kale Salad

I discovered Green Vegetarian Cuisine in San Antonio just a few weeks ago and I wish I knew about it earlier.  It is the only vegetarian and kosher restaurant in the area.  A lot of their food options are clean, high in fiber, high in protein and with loads of veggies.  I love it.  Not only is their food healthy, but they are eco-friendly with their energy efficient building, recycling bins and biodegradable packaging.  I highly recommend making a stop here!  Here are my favorites:

Valentine’s Dinner for Two: Part 1
