The flavor of kale is complimented really well by the tartness of the apple along with the sharpness of the cheddar and the wonderful crunch of almonds add another level of texture to this salad. Kale can be tough to digest in large amounts, something that really helps to tenderize the prickly edges is to literally massage the kale with your hands until it gets softer, turns a deeper shade of green, and releases fragrance.
