Chickpea and Kale Salad

I won't lie--I've never been a fan of kale.  I'd tried it a few times, but this year when I saw it was on sale, I got a pound (which with leafy greens, is quite an amount!) and experimented.  I saw this recipe and made it because I had everything, and it sound delicious!  I ate it every day last week for lunch, and I was a bit mad when The Hubby found it, tried it, and ate the rest!  However, hearing him say he liked it was priceless--he didn't know it was healthy and had kale.

Have you ever had kale?  Did you like it?  I have a bit left over so I am going to saute it.  Maybe next year, I'll get a bit more fancy with it!
