Sweet Kale Salad at Costco

Because Kale is everywhere, I've been avoiding the Sweet Kale salad in the refrigerator room at Costco. But, since winter vegetables aren't my favorite, and other salad veggies seem a little pekid at this time of year, I decided to experiment.  

The Sweet Kale salad has kale, but is not actually a "kale" salad.  Broccoli is the main ingredient, followed by Brussels sprouts and green cabbage. Kale is the 4th ingredient. The taste is similar to the fresh broccoli salad Costco used to carry.

The package contains two envelopes of dressing and a bag of dried cranberries and pumpkin seeds. One cup of salad equals 140 calories; the bag contains about 9 cups. 

I paid $4.99 for a 28 oz. bag. The dressing is sweet, but maybe necessarily so to offset the bitterness of the veggies.  We liked it, and I will probably buy this again.

  3. It's "peaked" not "pekid". :-) The salad looks good though!

  4. You know, I wondered about the spelling, since I'm a terrible speller, so I even looked it up. I figured since I was kind of archaic, I could go with pekid, but maybe that wasn't the right choice.
