Grilled Chicken and Kale Salad With Lemon Vinaigrette

Kale! It seems the whole world is singing the praises of Kale so I decided to give it a try without cooking it like "greens" with a bunch of bacon.  The lemon vinaigrette added a nice acid component to the bitterness of the Kale.  All and all it was a pretty tasty salad.
