    Simple salad with simple ingredients. I was looking specifically for a salad using kale for nutritional and preferrential reasons and this one fit nicely. Bite size pieces are certainly necessary with this type of lettuce because kale has so much substance. Flavor seemed mile to me but the ruffle of the leaves and the firmness of it all certainly created a salad that made you recognize this was roughage. I think this would be just as tasty served like a spinach salad with strawberries and almonds or a chinese chicken salad and just substituting the kale.  -  12 Aug 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I liked the simplicity of the ingredients; the flavor of the kale is not hidden, but nicely balanced with the rest. I added some toasted sesame seeds instead of sunflower seeds. I also found it a touch too salty, so next time, I would reduce the amount. Drizzled in a bit more olive oil at the end.  -  07 Jul 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I liked this salad quite well and am looking for recipes to use my newly grown curly leafed kale. Only a couple of changes. I used all extra virgin olive oil and agave nectar instead of sugar. I think some herbs like dill or basil might make it nicer.  -  07 Jun 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
