Here is how to make kale and apple salad:

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 bunches of kales.
  • 1-2 medium apples.

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped nuts
  • shredded cheese

  1. Remove tough stems and chop leaves roughly.
  2. Thinly slice or julienne the apple for better textural contrast with the kale.
  3. Toast nuts in a dry pan over medium heat for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until fragrant and lightly golden.
  4. Whisk together dressing ingredients in a small bowl or jar. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.
  5. Combine kale, apple, and any other chosen ingredients in a large bowl. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss well to coat everything evenly.

You can sweeten the dressing with honey, maple syrup, or dried fruit for a more pronounced sweet-tart balance. You can also add grilled chicken, tofu, or chickpeas.
