    Very healthy and easy recipe. Even my kids ate it too and liked it to my surprise. This will be a standard salad in my house from now on. Thanks a bunch! Side note: I always massage kale with a bit of olive oil and salt and let it sit for 30 minutes at least before mixing in the other ingredients. I find this softens the crunchy veggie and makes it easier to swallow.

    We made it with sunflower seeds and dried cranberries (instead of walnuts) and loved it!

    Sooo good. We didn’t have kale so just used a lot is Brussels and it was great. Also substituted slivered almonds instead of walnuts since it’s what I had. Added grilled chicken and it was a perfect dinner!

    Yummy!! Even the kids ate it. Thanks for the great recipe. Did not alter the slightest. Will definitely put on our regular rotation. Added bonus, it's healthy.

    Make this often- even my kids love it. It's perfect on the Thanksgiving table or as a BBQ side. I make a big batch & we eat it it for days- doesn't get soggy!

    I LOVE this salad and always have people asking for the recipe when I take it to a bbq.. I grow kale and instead of slicing, I rip it up and then massage a little olive oil into the kale to break up the fibres. Other than that, I make it exactly to the recipe listed.
