I love kale salads, but this one missed the mark for me. Props for the massaging step, as that is essential for making a great kale salad. The dressing definitely needed some salt, and why not just add the cinnamon to the dressing instead of sprinkling it on the kale? I measured everything out exactly, and for 10 ounces of kale, there wasn't nearly enough dressing. This was a very dry salad. I would double the dressing. I'd also add a touch of sweetness to it, such as raw honey, as the dressing is very tangy. I felt this could have used some cheese, such as crumbled feta or goat cheese. That said, the salad was very colorful and I loved the addition of the thyme and cinnamon. This makes HUGE portions...more like 5 or 6 instead of 3. Read More
