Who takes kale salad to a potluck picnic? I do! (Is that weird?)
Wherever I take it, this salad gets rave reviews–and many requests for the recipe. Now it’s featured in my new book Cooking Light Dinnertime Survival Guide.
Bonus: This salad actually gets better with time, as the lemony dressing softens the leaves.
Speaking of those leaves, scroll down for an easy how-to on removing the tough center stem from kale.
Sweet-Tart Kale Salad
Though kale can be chewy, the lemony dressing softens the leaves the longer it's stashed in the fridge.

- 1/4 teaspoon salt
