I tried making a kale salad and it was less than successful... I've heard you should massage kale to start breaking down the fibers first.... any thoughts on that? Would love the vinaigrette recipe please!

Emie: the vinaigrette is a pioneer woman recipe. 1/4 cup OJ, 2 T olive oil, 1 tsp sugar but I like to use honey instead, 1 clove garlic, salt and pepper. I put it in a mason jar and shake. Oh and 1 T of sour cream if you want it creamy and leave it out if you dont.
Regarding the kale - I dont massage mine and find I like it best after its been put together and sits for a day. This is why I also like to add a warm grain of some type to the salad. I think it tempers the texture of the kale.

Thanks Carol.... I love the Pioneer Woman's recipes.

the kale salad didn't sound too good at first, but by the end I was salivating!!!! Yumm!

How about a little more info on those almond slivers please? I'll take your word that the kale salad is good and I've even bought baby kale to move forward with it. It's the kind of thing my dh would roll his eyes if he saw but I'm willing to try kale once more.

Maureen: spicy/sugared slivered almonds are delicious on salads with oranges. Put a few tablespoons of sugar in a skillet, add some cayenne pepper (you decide how much you want based on how much spice you like), I used about 1/4 tsp. Turn on the heat, throw in the slivered almonds and stir. The sugar sort of melts and it, and the pepper, stick to the almonds and make little crunchy bits. Don't walk away while you are doing this. Once it starts the process goes very fast.
