Spicy Southern Style Kale Salad

A spicy, and slightly creamy kale recipe with sun-dried tomatoes and red onion. Make it even creamier by mashing the avocado into the dressing. I often bring this to pot-lucks and family gatherings. Now my non-vegan family requests that I make this. It is a real crowd pleaser. Many folks have told me they've had the same experience sharing this dish with their friends and families.

I find kale has a way of jumping out of the bowl when I am tossing it with the dressing. I use a VERY large bowl. You can find one at IKEA.

I regularly share this dish at non-vegan gatherings with rave reviews. People who don’t know me will come up to me much later saying that I’m the lady who made that fabulous Spicy Kale dish. All the credit goes to you Ama! I am in Maui, Hawaii right now getting ready to make it so we can take it to the beach; thanks to your mobile recipe website. God is so good!!
