Kale & Salsa (Hot Sauce) Salad for One

Kale is a little bitter, but I do love that stuff.  I had kale and nothing else that I usually add with it for a salad.
So I decide to add some hot sauce that I had just made and it tasted pretty good. I also used this on taco salad.

Kale Salad for One

3 stems of  kale, chopped (remove stems)
Salsa (enough to cover all the kale) 3T-4T  hot sauce

Kale has beta carotene, vitamin k , vitamin c, lutein zeaxanthin, calcium
Salsa has vitamin a
