“I love this as a substitute for a salad and it keeps great. I don't normally put carrot but it really makes it look better and gives it some texture. I add the mayo to 'eye' it. I like it creamier but my other half doesn't. The lemon makes a HUGE difference!”

Original recipe yields 8 servings



  1. Toss kale with carrot, orange juice, lemon juice, salt, and black pepper in a large salad bowl, using your hands to rub orange and lemon juice into kale leaves. Let stand a few minutes to absorb flavors.
  2. Fill a bowl with ice water. Bring a saucepan of water to a boil and stir onion into boiling water; cook just until starting to soften, 15 to 30 seconds. Drain and immediately immerse onion in ice water. Drain ice water, blot onion dry on paper towels, and add to kale. Stir bacon, mayonnaise, and olive oil into kale mixture and toss to coat. Can be made several hours ahead of time and refrigerated until serving time.

I made this but there were a few changes. I didn't have bacon and I used broccoli slaw I had. I also added walnuts when I was ready to eat it and this is a keeper. I can see being able to add what I want to it, making it different.



I cooked the onions in the bacon grease and patted them dry. Seems like a crime to waste good pig.

My husband and I both liked this salad but felt it needed something - maybe dried cranberries or candied walnuts? Update: added 1 cup candied walnuts (Ellie Krieger's easy Maple Glazed Walnuts from Food Network site) and it was so good!!!
