I selected this recipe because of the vinaigrette ingredients. With all the ingredients that I love, I thought it was a sure win. I was sadly disappointed. I just did not like the resulting combo of flavor.

Wonderful recipe and a great way to use kale. I used only 1-2 Tbsp of olive oil and didn't notice it was missing.
