  1. I prefer our New Zealand Apple Syrup to maple syrup. Cheaper, tastes better, and supports local industry. The label on one brand describes it as “New Zealand’s answer to maple syrup” and I totally agree.

  2. This is the second time making the recipe and I absolutely love it! A healthy autumn/winter dish and because of the lukewarm kale and warm squash, filling and yet a warm salad (I am no fan of cold salads in Winter time). Will browse your other recipes! Greetings from Switzerland
