Best Diet Recipes: Kale and Roasted Red Veg Salad

I like to use a mix of large and cherry tomatoes for this recipe. It looks lovely and gives different textures. The kale goes lovely and crunchy, but be careful not to overcook it as it seems to go from crisp to frazzled in a matter of minutes. A note from Eatopic: You can buy bags of ready-prepared kale in the supermarket. If you’re preparing it yourself strip the leaves off the tough stalks, discard the stalks and roughly tear the leaves.
