Tuscan Kale Salad

This recipe was inspired by a Kale salad that was at one of Sam Fox's restaurants in Scottsdale, AZ called True Foods Kitchen. After first tasting this salad, my husband found the recipe online and became OBSESSED with tweaking it and making it even better! The end result and taste is fantastic!
