The combination of the orange zest, juice, cinnamon, pecans, and dried cranberries makes this dish quite festive I think. My children eat this salad by the bowlful! They especially enjoy the toasted pecans and kale. If you have a citrus sensitivity then replace the fresh orange juice with organic apple cider and omit the orange zest. Be sure to find the freshest and most tender kale possible. I like using green curly kale for salads, but other varieties work as well.
