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...

I know this is definitely healthy but I need something to soften the stiffness (lack of a better word) of the kale. Most kale salads that appeal to me are drizzled with a hot oil to wilt the ka...

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...

This is the BEST kale salad I've yet to make; simply delicious. Couple of things: 1. I use only 1/2 the amount of salad dressing called for, and omit salt (see 2. below). 2. Prio...

We have gobs of kale in our garden, and this is my absolute favorite, go-to salad. I can eat it all summer long and never grow tired of it. It’s always a hit when I take it to gatherings.

Absolute best salad ever just as it is. However, I often don't have avocado's so I omit them sometimes and have often times used Swiss Chard instead of Kale. I think it is mainly the dressing ...

This was yummy! I find raw kale to be a bit coarse, so I used finely shredded baby kale and tossed it with the dressing about an hour before adding the rest of the ingredients.

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.
