"This salad has everything: the creaminess of avocado, the tanginess of apple, the crunch of almonds, and, of course, bacon. A great way to use extra kale."

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.
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.
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
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.
