I have made this salad about 10 times now for various people, and they all love it - even my picky teenagers! The only change I make is to use dijon mustard instead of yellow mustard because I t...

Pretty good. Great toppings of almonds, bacon, and avo. Made exactly as written but next time I will replace the maple syrup with honey and use a balsamic vinegar. The maple was a bit overpower...

This is a great simple salad! Omitted the avocado (didn't have one), but added about 1/4 shredded aged white cheddar. Tossed with half the dressing and that was plenty. Will definitely make this...

Did not use the maple syrup because I did not have any. I used brown sugar instead. But it was a hit nonetheless! Will make it repeatedly in future.

I loved this and made a few changes the second time around. Reserved a tablespoon of the bacon fat and sautéed the kale until it was bright green and slightly wilted. I also toasted the almonds ...
