Author Notes: Key is massage. You really need to massage with dressing. Because Kale doesn't contain much water, they would not become soggy by doing that. It gets taste better if you make it hours before. I sometimes make a lot and eat next day. Great pot luck dish too. You also substitute almonds to your favorite nuts, and any dry fruits. I sometimes add fresh mango. I also like to add chia seeds or hemp seeds in the dressing. —mayuchico
