Honey Kale Currant & Almond Salad

    My new addiction. This salad is so good, easy to make too. I was never a fan of kale before, but have found a few recipes that I do like, including this one. You’d never know you were eating kale.

    This is a great salad. Even people who said they didn't like kale, ate this salad and liked it. Always a nice addition to a meal. Quick to make once the kale is clean. Love the crunchy taste along with surprise tartness of the dressing.

    This is a delicious salad that can be made ahead because kale does not go limp as quickly as other greens. Loved the sweet, tart, crunchy, & salty tastes in the salad. I will definitely put this in my keeper file.
