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. 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! :)

Ingredients
  

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 6 cups kale torn, and big ribs removed and discarded
  • 1/2 apple cut into thin, 1″ pieces (I went with Honey Crisp, but Gala would be good as well)
  • 1/3 cup walnuts chopped and lightly toasted
  • 3 tablespoons blue cheese crumbled

Instructions
 

  • In a small jar, combine the olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, and salt. Secure the lid and shake vigorously to combine.
  • Place the kale leaves into a large salad bowl and, using your hands, sort of massage the olive oil mixture into the leaves.
  • Throw the apples, walnuts, and blue cheese on top of the kale and lightly toss to combine.

  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.
