How much olive oil and vinegar? Do you like a certain vinegar?

Why bother? toss kale in dressing and let sit for 10-15 minutes while going aobut the rest of your kitchen business. Add the resto of the ingredients and toss again and serve. Nice tender kale, nicely dressed salad, no extra fuss or bother!!
