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.
Maybe should have let it sit longer for the flavors to meld
