Grilled Tilapia with Crispy Kale and Tomatoes

Recipe of the Month - February 2014
Damn, tilapia, you tasty. Especially when you’re gently laid down on a bed of crispy, garlicky kale, and topped off with some citrusy tomatoes, creamy avocado, and crunchy red onion. Ohhh yeah. We could only love you more if you cooked us the meal yourself – but that would just be cruel, so we’ll settle for making it on our own.
