    My husband and I loved this salad! We paired it with a quinoa burger for meat-less Monday! Very filling and fantastic !

    So far this has been my favorite lunch meal. I wasn't familiar with kale before doing this detox and it really isn't too bad. Would definitely recommend trying thins one.

    I love this recipe alone.....but I also combine another detox salad along with it and process the whole thing in my cuisinart. I add broccoli, cauliflower and golden raisins to the mix. The veggies bulk it up and the raisins sweeten it a bit.

    Big hit at recent BBQ! Such a great basic recipe, very flexible. Super yummy on top of veggie burgers. I added more red onion and carrot than indicated. Next time may swap out parsley for cilantro and add a minced serrano or jalapeno.

    So tasty. The raw kale is a bit much for me, so I substituted steamed broccoli. The dressing is delicious with lemon instead of cider vinegar. You can buy pre-packaged cabbage/carrot slaw at Whole Foods to make it even quicker to prepare. Great to bring to work for lunch.

    Love this and so does my 17 y/o daughter. It's so fresh tasting and the apple cider vinegar adds just the right touch of acidity. I'm so impressed that these recipes are all something I'd add to my normal diet. They don't taste at all "detoxy."

    I loved this recipe! Like another reviewer, I used walnuts instead of hemp seeds. Both are a good source of Omega-3 fatty acids. I also added cayenne and smoked paprika to the dressing. Will try to lemon juice on it next time, that sounds great! I used whole seed mustard and thought it went well with the other flavors. I made the recipe a second time and added raisins; I think it'd be good with apples as well.

    The raw kale was a bit too "hearty" for me. I will not make this again but will continue with kale chip snacks to gain the benefits.

    LOVED THIS! I really enjoyed all the tasted in this salad. I'm not sure that I agree with the serving size. I could have eaten the whole thing. One thing I am beginning to notice is that I hate parsley, maybe next time I will use cilantro, but I would definitely make this again!
