  1. Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute kale and garlic in hot oil until fragrant and kale is bright green, 2 to 3 minutes. Add water to skillet; cook and stir until kale wilts, about 5 minutes more. Drain.
  2. Whisk 1/2 cup olive oil, vinegar, orange juice, soy sauce, onion, ginger, salt, and pepper together in a large bowl. Add kale mixture to bowl and toss until kale is evenly coated. Sprinkle cranberries, pepitas, and almonds over the top. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour, or overnight.

It was very yummy!

I generally find that I am completely on board with other reviewers, but I flip-flopped between giving this recipe three stars and four stars. I love kale and eat a lot of it in various forms, ...

Can't eat enough of it, it's my favorite salad!

I loved the salad. I followed the recipe exactly, only I toasted both pumpkin seeds and almonds. I did not feel it was not sweet enough. After all, it is a salad, not a desert :)

My whole family liked this. I used fresh OJ based on the other reviews, otherwise followed this exactly.
