  1. What about cutting out the veins of the kale leaves ? This is in every other kale recipe I have seen…

    • LaaLoosh says:

      You can remove the leaves from the veins/stems first, if you prefer. I’ve chopped it with the veins, and I don’t mind it. But maybe that’s because I’m just too lazy? :)

  2. Susan Kolpack says:

    It is not Vegan if it contains honey. Honey is harvested from an insect (animal). Use Agave instead.

  3. I made this and really liked it…I did make a couple of changes, I used Lime flavored EVOO in place of the regular. I also chopped up the kale and added the dressing to it and massaged it for about 2 minutes to make it a little tenderer. Then added in the rest of the ingredients. It was great and we will make it again!
