I had the bright idea to make this slaw a day ahead, and it was horrible! The kale was really bitter and we had to eventually throw it all out. I hope that others will not make the same mistake I did. No stars given because I did not follow the directions of chilling for only 1 hour. The taste test right after making it was good, and I bet after the 1 hour of chilling time it would have been really good. I am sorry I let mine sit overnight.
UH-mazing! I am so happy to find a recipe that makes raw kale delicious. I made exactly as written except for...now that I think about it I did change a few things. First of all, cut way back on cayenne (just a pinch and I still could taste it. And I like spicy!), swapping almonds for the walnuts because I prefer them, and cranberries and chopped apple. YUM! Husband and I agreed adding some salty chunks of broiled chicken would make this a delicious meal on it's own. And how else could you make these uber healthy greens taste like a treat?
I thought this was really good! I followed the recipe exactly, except I also added some spinach leaves to the mix. While I was eating it, I thought that apple would go well, so I am going to try that with the leftovers. Next time I will cut back a little bit on the cayenne. UPDATE: The leftovers were really good with some apple!!!
