I love this salad. The different flavors of the apple / kale and sweet potato are so exciting together. Love it.
I love this salad! I like to take it to potlucks, and it's always a hit. I do think it calls for way more kale than you need. I usually use one large bunch. And I think the cheese is kind of unnecessary.
The flavours in this are AMAZING. sweet salty filling and nutritious. Even my meat lover father went back for more.
The cheese and the Dijon. I simply skipped the pecorino and it was still delicious. And I almost always skip the salt too, and I did in this case, because I used the Dijon.
I followed the tip and prepared the kale in advance. The amount of kale was reduced by more than 1/2 when it came time to put things together. It didn't seem to make a big difference, I just added more sweet potato to make up for the difference. I did like the flavors, but my husband was not too crazy about it so I doubt if I will be making it again. The Honeycrisp apple really went well with the blend of flavors. It was interesting and I do like the description of "symphony" of flavors. Perfect way to describe it.
Made this last night and it was delicious! I used a large gauge shredder, with Parmesan (because that's what I had...), and much less than 4 ounces. I believe I used a bit less than dressing than it called for (didn't measure), but we could still taste it, and the whole family loved it. Will become a regular addition...
The recipe is for 4, and it calls for 4 oz of pecorino. That's one of the saltiest cheeses around. I think you could reduce the cheese by using a microplane and using much less - maybe 1-2oz for the 4 person serving. That will cut the salt a LOT. I would also skip the added salt, because the pecorino will coat everything if you use a microplane, and it will act like salt in the recipe.
Why is the sodium count so high? At 1006 mg per serving, it's anything but healty for someone like myself with hypertension!
This salad is amazing!
This is absolutely amazing! My husband and vegetarian daughter asked for it not once but twice this week. My daughter, who is very picky, declared that the flavors were a "symphony"...she also told me that this was the best thing she had ever eaten. My away-from-home daughter asked for the recipie as soon as I told her about it. Now she can't wait to try it. A Home-Run!!!
