  1. I would choose this recipe over the Brussels sprouts. A helpful hint I learned to improve the texture of raw kale is to sprinkle it with olive oil and “massage” it in before adding the other ingredients. It transforms it, and even people who hated kale salad because it was tough, like it now.

    • We appreciate your feedback, Linda. Thank you for sharing that helpful hint with us.

      That’s pretty interesting. We’ll definitely consider trying that in our future recipes.

      Thank you so much. We hope you have a wonderful day!

      • It makes a big difference in the kale if you massage it. Put the kale in the bowl first sprinkle with salt was how I was taught. Then you do not need to add salt to the dressing. Otherwise, I do not like kale.
