AUTHOR NOTES

Katrina and I have a slight obsession...KALE! We love experimenting with this superfood, and if you're anything like us, you eat kale almost every day! We enjoy it in smoothies, salads, sautés, juices, wraps, soups and we even like making it into chips.

      Ah, I just commented about my thyroid problems and then scrolled down to see this. Thanks!

      1. toneitupcom says:

        This salad would also work well with another leafy green like spinach, arugula or baby greens! Just skip the massaging/marinading and serve right away ;)

  6. missemcee says:

    Thanks for this recipe, I make a kale salad similar to this that is always a hit at parties!

    Question for K&K though – I suffer from a mild form of hypothyroidism and I recently read that I should actually avoid vegetables in the brassica oleracea family, some of my fav veggies too! I would love for you girls to address this topic with some suggestions since you girls are so creative with your yummy recipes and always offer helpful nutrition tips!

    Thanks K&K! <3

  7. Ashlee Spear says:

    Yum! I made this for dinner tonight, and already have it copied down on a note card and saved in my recipe box! I did add bleu cheese to it :/

  8. T Taylor says:

    OMG! I JUST discovered Kale, like last week! went “Google Storm” to find healthy ways to enjoy! This looks yummy! The posts look good as well! Thanks to all who contribute!

  9. Elisabeth Carrozza Wilkins says:

    What is the point of peeling the orange? Does the orange peel go in the recipe??

  10. Christina says:

    Will this salad work as part of the 5 or 7 day slim down? And if so which meal?

  11. Loved the dressing! I didn’t have kale but I used spinach instead and it was delicious! Definitely will be using this dressing again!

  12. This is so tasty! I’m so happy with how it turned out! I changed it up a little bit and added in cucumbers and strawberries.

  13. Is this supposed to be eaten in one serving? As one meal or broken up into 3 meals?
