Food Fridays: Collard Green Salad

So decided to try something new on my blog.  I love food and I try my best to live a healthy lifestyle.  So I thought it would be fun to showcase all of the recipes I try out on my blog on Fridays called – Food Fridays!

So for my first Food Friday, decided to start things fresh with a Collard Green Salad.  I love eating salads, and yes salads can be filling if you know what ingredients to add to them.  Plus, I wanted to try something new, and never had collard green salad.
