The rich spicy soy dressing goes really well with the nutty flavor of the kale. To save time I also use pre-package kale and cabbage mix from whole foods and added some cherry tomatoes, extra shredded carrot, cucumber, toasted slivered almonds and cranberries. I omit the radishes. Even my husband who doesn't like kale said it was good. I made ahead and let it "marinade" for several hours before serving.
I love this recipe! Not sure why the previous reviewer had such a poor experience. I have made it multiple times, including for huge parties, and it is invariably the recipe that everyone wants. My boyfriend asks me to make it two or three times a week.
So here is what I do - I buy the Kale salad mix at Whole Foods which contains cabbage and shredded carrot. I triple the dressing ingredients, except for the dark sesame oil which I leave at the 2 teaspoons. I add pumpkin seeds, cherry tomatoes, slice zucchini, and cucumber. Sometimes I add in bean sprouts or sunflower seed sprouts. It is absolutely divine! Make it. You will not be sorry.
