Kale and Apple Salad

I've got another holiday recipe for you today! This kale and apple salad may be just for the adult table though, if I am being honest. The apples, walnuts, and blue cheese really round out this tasty salad.

Kale and Apple Salad from 100 Days of #RealFood #kale

I don’t know about your kids, but my girls have never been big blue cheese fans (they’ve dubbed it “stinky cheese” for obvious reasons), and no matter how hard I try, I can’t really get them into raw kale lately either.

But just because they feel that way doesn’t mean we have to miss out on this divine combination. So this is one of those rare occasions when our little ones might get something separate…albeit a different type of salad! :)

  1. I’m with your girls, raw kale doesn’t make sense to me. It takes a bit of cooking to break down the cells of kale to release it’s nutrients. By eating it raw you are missing out on most of it’s nourishment. Even sauteing it briefly in olive oil and your choice of seasonings such as garlic and red pepper flakes makes it healthier to eat than raw.

  2. There are so many different types of kale at the store – I am never sure which to buy. Can you advise on which kind you used in this recipe?

  3. This is my new favorite salad! I love bleu cheese so I added a little more but besides that I followed the recipe exactly and it’s so delicious! Thank you!!

      Hi Sandra. Kale holds up better than most greens once it has been dressed. I’ve eaten this as a leftover the next day but have not tried keeping it beyond a day or two. The nuts might get a bit soggy, too. :)

  4. I could not get my daughter, or myself for that matter, to ever get used to the taste of raw kale. Knowing how good it is for us I found a recipe for fried kale. After removing the leaf from the stems I fry it in a pan with a small amount of olive oil and season with garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and sea salt until it’s slightly crispy. The “cabbage” taste it usually has while raw completely goes away and we love it! My daughter wants to eat it almost every day!
