Fall Kale Salad

Find it on Pinterest

Cook's Note: If you read our blog often (and we hope you do!), then you know our love for KALE. I look for any excuse I can to sneak it in! This is a wonderful side salad that you can add many in-season fall flavors to. I threw this salad together myself, but the salad dressing listed really makes it pop! I have listed the dressing recipe below and there is also a link to it separately. This salad is easy peasy and if you like KALE it will be something you LOVE. 

What You Will Need: 

1 bunch kale, very thinly cut
1 Honey Crisp apple (or any apple you choose) , sliced
1/2 cup of Dried Cranberries 
1/4 cup glazed pecans (such as: Emerald Pumpkin Pie Pecans)
1/2 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese

Next to make the SALAD DRESSING! 

Honey Lemon Dressing: 
1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
All of the juice from a  Fresh Squeezed Lemon
3 tablespoons Honey
Pinch of Sea Salt
Fresh Ground Pepper to taste
To prepare salad dressing: Wisk together olive oil, lemon juice & honey in a bowl and the place into a jar or container and shake well. 

SALAD Directions: 

Wash and cut kale and place in salad bowl. Next add cranberries, apples, nuts and cheese. Last, add dressing and toss well. 

Enjoy with a side to your favorite fall meal.
