This is fabulous! I didn't have any orange juice so I used two lemons with some stevia, also added thin slices of red bell pepper but did everything else the same as the recipe. It was fantastic. item not reviewed by moderator and published

OMG I made this for dinner tonight and it was so so good!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was really good. I had to change a few things due to ingredients on hand....I substituted the citrus for pomegranate seeds and some of the juice from the pomegranate and added some pine nuts. I didn't feel like making any bacon so excluded that. I served with fresh grilled tuna inside corn tortillas topped with the kale slaw. We all loved it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was good. And I'd like to thank past reviewers, especially the one who said they added pine nuts. I made the recipe and tried it as written (except 2 pieces of bacon vs one. It had a VERY raw kale taste. I kept looking at reviews b/c everyone seemed to love it. It was just ok. I LOVE kale, grow it in my garden and cook it all the time so I was bummed I didn't like it as much as everyone else. I then I added 1/2 C finely chopped red pepper to sweeten it and then 1/4 C toasted pine nuts. This was exactly what it needed. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved this salad!! Easy to prepare and very flavorful. The only direction I did not follow was blanching the onions. I just chopped and threw them in. I really do not think it is necessary to blanch in my opinion. I will make this many more times! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious recipe for kale! I have made this numerous times and everyone raves, even those who didn't think they would like kale! Most of the time I am too lazy to quick cook the onion because I love them raw. Otherwise, I follow the recipe. For those who are too lazy to grate the carrot...I buy them already grated at the store. item not reviewed by moderator and published
