"This is a modified version of a national grocery chain's kale salad. It's a delicious way to eat your greens! You can substitute sesame seeds for the pepitas."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I've never tried the "grocery store salad" but have coworkers who rave about a specific one that sounds very similar. This is OUTSTANDING! We love kale, and wilting it in this salad gives us another way to enjoy it. My 11 year old daughter is excited to pack this in her lunch for tomorrow. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!
I feel bad giving a lower rating and I'm not new to kale but I felt this was in need of some sweetness. I added a small amount of agave otherwise we would have likely not eaten it. I found the red wine vinegar harsh and fresh OJ is a must to help the balance. Also must sit overnight. Portions are very small if serving 4 as the kale wilts down. I did like the idea of the nuts,seeds and fruit. Thanks sydneyt
I really like this, but I think it should be stated to use FRESH OJ in this. I used bottled, and think fresh would have added the nice sweetness this needed for me... Good overall..will make again :)
I just had this salad from a local grocery store and loved it! I was so excited to find the recipe. I think this will be included in my Easter dinner. It's deliciously fresh and flavorful. The cranberries and the hint of citrus from the orange juice paired so well that it brought out all the other flavors beautifully! :)
It was very yummy!
I generally find that I am completely on board with other reviewers, but I flip-flopped between giving this recipe three stars and four stars. I love kale and eat a lot of it in various forms, but this recipe (which I made with freshly squeezed orange juice) was just a bit too tart for me. I ended up sprinkling sugar over the salad when serving it in an effort to sweeten it up a bit. I think that this recipe is well-done if this is the flavour you are seeking (hence the four stars rather than three), but I personally didn't love it.
Can't eat enough of it, it's my favorite salad!
My husband loved this and I thought it was pretty good and looking forward to the leftovers. I did make some tweaks: halved the dressing. Used Allspice instead of ginger because that is what I had on hand. I also added a little bit of Splenda based on other comments about needing to balance the acid of the vinegar. I topped with some goat cheese crumbles right before serving because that makes everything better :)
