A few years ago I tried a kale salad at Whole Foods Market and fell in love with everything about it! I was able to obtain the recipe but lost it when we moved a few months ago. Now that the weather is a little cooler I have been craving the salad and decided to try and make my own rendition as close to the original as possible. I have to say my mission was successful!
This salad has thinly sliced kale, toasted walnuts, shaved Parmesan cheese, dried cranberries, crunchy apples, and a tangy citrus and shallot vinaigrette. It would be perfect as a side with dinner or with your Thanksgiving Dinner feast coming up next month. I’m hoping the kale in my garden will be ready in time so we can have this salad with our Thanksgiving dinner in Arizona next month.
Thinly slice your kale. I don’t like biting into giant pieces and I prefer the dressing covers the thinly sliced pieces of kale. To each their own. If the large pieces don’t bother you, go for it! Last but not least, enjoy!
Look at those vibrant colors!
