"Great winter salad with all raw veggies! You have to try it to believe how wonderful it is. Our 3 girls (6 and under) call it 'Sister Slaw' and will it eat before the rest of the meal. Massage the salad with your hands, especially the kale, to get the dressing worked into the veggies. This is critical and helps soften everything and really is the most important part!" — Sweet Dog Farm

Since kale is so bitter I added a bit more maple syrup than the recipe called for as well as toasted walnuts and dried cranberries. It was fabulous!!!!
This was just average for us. It sounded so interesting, but nothing about it made me say Wow. It needs something to vary the texture--some pine nuts or walnuts would be nice, and maybe some sun-dried tomatoes. Otherwise, it was a bit boring. Thanks, anyway.
Fantastic! I made a big bowl thinking it would last us for a few meals but no, we ate it all in one supper! The kale I used had purple spines, not sure what variety that is, and it was so pretty. I also cut down on prep time by using bagged carrot slaw and I threw some chicken in to make it a complete meal. I only marinated it for about four hours and it was perfect. I am going to be making this for two family reunions this summer and can't wait to hear the rave reviews!
Awesome! Made it all organic! This could be a meal for our family!!!
I love this slaw with kale from my local farmers market. I usually substitute brocoli slaw instead of the cabbage and carrots. I use organic sugar instead of maple syrup. Also have used red wine vinegar instead of balsamic. Great healthy salad for the winter!
Tastes good, Smells good, very pretty! Very fresh! I added juice from a whole lime, used a 1/4 of an onion, and a generous amount of maple syrup. I also added some toasted seseamee seeds.
In the midwest they make vegatables larger! I only used 1/2 of a cabbage and 1/2 of a "bunch" of kale. This recipe does not need the full 2/3 cup oil, about 1/2 cup should do nicely. Otherwise, very good.
I use less onion, season to taste and add toasted rough chopped almonds. We enjoy this as a side dish as well as a main dish by adding smoked salmon and Pecorino Romano. Easy and healthy. Thanks for sharing.
