Kale in Spanish

Kale in Spanish is nothing more than the so-called green cabbage (col verde) or curly cabbage (col rizada). It is a vegetable cousin of broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts. Kale, col rizada in Spanish, is a vegetable that came to unseat spinach, complete with Popeye. It is becoming the queen of green products.
