Can I use baby kale instead of regular kale?
Yes, baby kale can be substituted for regular kale leaves. Use the same amount – 1 packed cup of chopped baby kale in place of chopped regular kale.
What kind of pear is best?
Ripe Bartlett or Anjou pears work well. Their sweetness balances the kale. Avoid rock hard pears. Ripeness is more important than variety.
