Bison, also called buffalo or wisent is a great source of nutrients, such as zinc, niacin, iron, vitamin B6, and selenium. Although I have never eaten bison (yet), those who have had this tasty, flavorful and healthy meat sing it’s healthy praises because it is also lower in saturated fat than regular cow beef. According to reports, the American bison is the official mammal of the United States and is the largest mammal in North America.

At least not until today, bison is one ingredient we have not featured in our Food Porn Friday recipe segments. This healthy recipe for Grilled Bison & Sweet Potato Kale Salad by Sharon Bishop is from the kitchen of Plated With Style. The presentation alone looks all tooooo delicious.
