This high protein, high green kale and arugula salad is bursting with nutrients as well as protein. Greens are one of the most detoxifying, healing and rejuvenating  foods to consume and arugula, aka rocket, and kale are a couple of the best ones with high levels of chlorophyll and abundant nutrients. 

Arugula had a spicy peppery flavor that can be a little strong for some. However with this mixture of ingredients and the spice combo, the arugula flavor is mellowed out and quite delicious. It went over well with all! Kale also is a tougher one (literally) for many to enjoy in a salad or dish eaten raw. However, by processing it small, as in this recipe, it is super easy to consume and eat. I loved this combo. This is how it goes..
