I've been addicted to this salad for over a year now. I make it just as written (any type of kale works) and don't use the optional cheese. This deserves way more than 5*, 27 in fact. If you or someone in your family can't imagine eating kale raw, much less enjoying it, try this. It's truly delicious. I've never had anyone turn their nose up and most have seconds. Fabulous recipe, Cookgirl.
Great way to eat raw greens! I had a load of arugula to use up, and this was different, but so tasty. I added 1/2 apple diced up and used cashews instead of walnuts, because that is what I had. But I would encourage others to make sure they include some nuts, as this is an excellent balance to the sometimes peppery greens. Thanks for this salad, cookgirl!
I bought some siberian kale at a farmer's market, and didn't want to make soup on a hot summer day. This was great! I made a huge bowl to share with my husband and daughter. Not nearly as good with grocery store kale, though--it's worth a trip to the farmer's market to get the good stuff.
We're part of a produce co-op and couldn't figure out what to do with the Kale, never found a decent recipe until this one! It's really, really good.
