  1. In a serving bowl, whisk together vinegar, mustard and honey. Slowly add 1 tablespoon of the oil until combined well. Add onion with salt and pepper to taste, tossing to combine.
  2. Meanwhile cook bacon in a large skillet over moderate heat until crisp, about 4 minutes. Transfer with a slotted spoon and drain bacon on paper towels. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, the sprouts and chestnuts, if using, to skillet and cook over moderately high heat until golden brown, about 4 minutes. Add kale and cook until slightly wilted, about 30 seconds.
  3. Transfer cooked ingredients to the serving bowl with the dressing; add dates and goat cheese and toss. Season with salt and pepper.
