Apple Dijon Kale Salad

Serves: 4

Time ~20 minutes


⅓ cup olive oil

¼ cup apple cider vinegar

1 clove garlic

1½ Tbsp dijon mustard

¼ tsp salt

fresh cracked pepper

1 bunch kale

1 medium granny smith apple

¼ cup raisins/craisins

½ cup Nuts (walnuts/pecans/sunflower seeds/pumpkin seeds)


  1. Tear the kale leaves from the stems. Cut the leaves into thin slices and then rinse well under cool water (in a colander). Allow the kale to drain as you prepare the rest of the salad.

  2. In a blender combine the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, dijon mustard, clove of garlic, salt, and pepper. Blend until the garlic is minced and the dressing is smooth. (A blender is not necessary. Just a quick whisk of all the ingredients is enough to mix it all well. You’d just need to mince the garlic yourself).

  3. Wash the apple and chop it into chunks. Combine the kale in a large bowl with the apples, nuts, and raisins. Pour the dressing on top, starting with half, and toss to coat. Add more dressing as desired.
