I've never tried the "grocery store salad" but have coworkers who rave about a specific one that sounds very similar. This is OUTSTANDING! We love kale, and wilting it in this salad gives us another way to enjoy it. My 11 year old daughter is excited to pack this in her lunch for tomorrow. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!

I really like this, but I think it should be stated to use FRESH OJ in this. I used bottled, and think fresh would have added the nice sweetness this needed for me... Good overall..will make again :)

I feel bad giving a lower rating and I'm not new to kale but I felt this was in need of some sweetness. I added a small amount of agave otherwise we would have likely not eaten it. I found the red wine vinegar harsh and fresh OJ is a must to help the balance. Also must sit overnight. Portions are very small if serving 4 as the kale wilts down. I did like the idea of the nuts,seeds and fruit. Thanks sydneyt
