Raw Kale Salad

Raw kale may not sound the most appetizing for a salad, but when finely chopped and tossed with red onion, carrots, green beans, and a zingy dressing made with balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, mustard, garlic, and curry, its prickly character changes for the better. This makes an unusual, less fattening alternative to the typical creamy coleslaw. Try topping it with crumbled bacon, vegetarian bacon bits, gorgonzola cheese, or toasted slivered almonds.
