This is a great simple salad! Omitted the avocado (didn't have one), but added about 1/4 shredded aged white cheddar. Tossed with half the dressing and that was plenty. Will definitely make this again.

I have made this salad about 10 times now for various people, and they all love it - even my picky teenagers! The only change I make is to use dijon mustard instead of yellow mustard because I think it tastes much better. Also, as someone else said here, only half the recommended dressing is needed. This salad has become a staple of our diet.

This was yummy! I find raw kale to be a bit coarse, so I used finely shredded baby kale and tossed it with the dressing about an hour before adding the rest of the ingredients.

Pretty good. Great toppings of almonds, bacon, and avo. Made exactly as written but next time I will replace the maple syrup with honey and use a balsamic vinegar. The maple was a bit overpowering for me. Also needs another softer green like spinach or baby romaine. Since I knew kale was going to be much firmer, I added the dressing early -- about 20 minutes before serving to make sure it added a lot of flavor. Definite potential here

Did not use the maple syrup because I did not have any. I used brown sugar instead. But it was a hit nonetheless! Will make it repeatedly in future.

I loved this recipe! But I made a few changes. I used shrimp instead of bacon, white vinegar, and yellow mustard. I also omitted the apples. Besides that, it was quick and easy! The dressing was delicious!

SOOO good! I'm always looking for new ways to use kale, as I get lots of it from my produce coop. I could eat this every day! Yum!!

Didn't use the exact dressing recipe because I already had one made that was similar. We're new to kale but finding it to be quite tasty and versatile.
