There are a couple of “tricks” to making this recipe:

  1. Chop the kale into really small pieces. Kale leaves are tough so you don’t want to end up with a big chewy piece in your mouth.
  2. Massage the dressing into the kale at least 15 minutes before serving. The dressing will soften the leaves and make them more tender (although they’ll still maintain their crunch.)
  3. Sprinkle the salad with either Parmesan cheese or nutritional yeast for a little cheesy savory “pop”.

This dressing also makes an awesome dip for roasted veggies. Try it with the Crispy Sheet Pan Broccoli.
