kale salad with creamy roasted garlic dressing

I went to the farmers market yesterday.  I love the farmers market.  You always get the best the season has to offer, and it’s all local!  I saw some beautiful kale salad and picked it up.  I also come across some beautiful cucumber and tomatoes.  I really wanted to keep the kale in the most natural state.  “Why not a salad?”  Yeah, why not!

I gave the kale a really good wash and tore it into bit sized pieces.  Chopped some tomatoes and cucumbers.  But, the dressing is what really made this salad.
