Excellent breakfast idea! I want to start eating more kale so I tried this recipe for breakfast. I wilted the kale with a little olive oil and salt and it tasted great with the egg and bacon. I will try it the next time with the dressing and fresh kale.

This is awesome! Filling and flavorful. Very easy to prepare. I used fresh kale from stock, removed the center veins, which gave more texture and held up well with the egg.

This was actually pretty good. I wasn't so sure before making it. All the flavors were good but eating an egg on the salad was ok. I'll maybe have the salad separate with the egg and bacon together next time
