    I really liked it. I would make this again and maybe try a different cheese.

    2017-05-27. Super easy and delicious. First time at making kale. Heard so much about it and wanted to know what all the fuss was about. Now i know why

    Perfect recipe! So quick and easy. This will be a staple for years to come. Even my 4 year old ate some!
    I LOVED this recipe! 1. Kale is even healthier when raw 2. This is actually delicious, I was a bit suspicious about the cheese because without it it was so delicious already but for some reason the parmesan brought it to a whole new level. I'm going to be eating this as a snack, as a salad with other stuff as a meal and as a side dish. Thanks!

    HIGHLY recommend this recipe. I love kale but my jaw would always hurt when I ate it raw because it was so tough. Not anymore! Who would have thought that massaging kale would make such a difference?

    I will never go back to not massaging my kale again!! Insanely impressed what a difference this made. Recipe is perfect, didn't alter a thing. Made it to go with thanksgiving dinner and my boyfriend and I gobbled it up quicker than a turkey! Thanks!

    I've never thought of massaging my greens before but this kale salad is really delicious. I now wonder how many other greens I could try this way.
