oh, dear, meant to put this into the Too Many Cooks Favorite Recipes of 2013. Clicked on the wrong comment section. :(

That kale and brussels sprout salad recipe is terrific, but it's from Bon Appetit. Just a Taste added agave to the vinaigrette and is passing it off as an original. Thought you would want to know, given your guidance on recipe attribution.

Thanks for letting us know, ccasey! The credit has been changed on Just a Taste to "Adapted from Bon Appetit." (And now I will go make it for lunch...)
