  1. Tear each kale leaf into two halves.
  2. Split the dates in half, removing the pit. Place an almond in each date half in the space left by the pit. Wrap each date half in a kale leaf half; pierce each with a toothpick to keep wrapped.



So easy! Any kind of nut could go into the date, and instead of a whole almond, I preferred chopped nuts. I liked these without being secured with toothpicks. Great as a snack or as an appeti...

Delicious! We made these at my sister's house in California and everyone loved them. Great idea!

Loved these stuffed with chopped walnuts. Wonderful and pretty to serve.
