Very delicious; and a pretty salad too. I thought there wasn't enough dressing so I doubled the dressing recipe. I think next time I will add some red onion. After eating it my husband asked ifI could make it tomorrow too. I said "sure- if you go back to the grocery store :-) "
This was a very good recipe and I would really like to give it 3+ stars. The dressing is very subtle and light. I only used half the amount of the red pepper and was happy that I did. I like spicy dishes, but didn't like the idea of an overly spicy salad. Half the amount was perfect for me!
I enjoyed the avocado and mango. They were refreshing additions to the salad. The big surprise was how much I loved the toasted coconut! I don't always like coconut, but this really stood up to the bold flavor of the kale.
