"I love this as a substitute for a salad and it keeps great. I don't normally put carrot but it really makes it look better and gives it some texture. I add the mayo to 'eye' it. I like it creamier but my other half doesn't. The lemon makes a HUGE difference!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

kale, stems removed and leaves thinly sliced
salt and ground black pepper to taste
red onion, very thinly sliced
cooked bacon, chopped
I made this but there were a few changes. I didn't have bacon and I used broccoli slaw I had. I also added walnuts when I was ready to eat it and this is a keeper. I can see being able to add what I want to it, making it different.
I cooked the onions in the bacon grease and patted them dry. Seems like a crime to waste good pig.
My husband and I both liked this salad but felt it needed something - maybe dried cranberries or candied walnuts?
Update: added 1 cup candied walnuts (Ellie Krieger's easy Maple Glazed Walnuts from Food Network site) and it was so good!!!
I used some grated beet for the red color when I discovered that I didn't have any red onion. Several pecans subbed for bacon because of being a vegetarian. This is more like a tossed salad than a slaw, which I think of as a cabbage salad with mayonnaise. By any name, this is a tasty salad!
My family all enjoyed this which is a big win. I love the fact that it uses in-season ingredients and basic kitchen staples.It was easy to prepare....what else do you need?
This is the first time I've used raw kale in a dish and I loved it! Used three slices of bacon, threw in some sliced almonds and a little swiss cheese. Otherwise, followed as written. I did sprinkle a few croutons on top of hubby's salad. He loved it too! Sooo good! Thank you, meggerz802! Oh, I also cheated and threw my sliced red onion in a bowl with a small amount of water and microwaved it for a minute and the drained. So much easier than boiling!
Excellent!!! I added chard, some grape tomatoes and fried sandwich salami because I didn't have bacon and some fresh ground pepper. Yummy!!
