    Cookgirl's Note:

    We received kale in our CSA box the other day and this salad was the result-quickly constructed yesterday to accompany a tofu main dish. I added half raisins and half barberries but you can substitute another dried fruit either alone or in any combination: raisins/golden raisins, dried figs, dried dates, currants, dried cranberries, barberries, dried cherries. Some elements of the dressing were inspired by a recipe found online although I forgot to bookmark where I found it!

      This was off the chart amazing! I was kinda skeptical with the mixture, but hot dang, this is a winner! I used pomegranate molasses and fake maple syrup. My husband said it was a "top 2" dressing and asked me to make this for his work holiday potluck this week! What a crazy cool combo of ingredients. Thanks so much Cookgirl!

      Wow! I've made other raw kale salads but this one got rave reviews from the family! I'm not sure what made the difference. Absolutely delicious & perfect texture. Just the right amount of dressing & well balanced! Made for NA/ME Tag 9/12. Thank you, CG!!
