This is a great salad you could make for the holidays. I love the cranberries, apples, and walnuts mixed in with the kale and a great dressing. Super simple to make, but you'll want to eat this the same day. If you have trouble with raw kale, you probably could substitute some other greens. We used the curly kale and softened it by massaging in some lemon juice. Kristy suggested rubbing orange juice into the kale which would be really good in this recipe. The dressing is fabulous and could be used in other foods. Try it. You'll like it!
KALE WALDORF SALAD
2 cups kale
1/2 apple, diced
1/2 stalk celery, diced
1T sunflower seeds
2T dried cranberries
1t black sesame seeds (opt) We're still doing our experiment with reversing gray hair!
Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl.
This will make more than what you'll need for the salad unless you double the salad ingredients.
4T unsweetened applesauce (we used our own pear/applesauce)
1T coconut vinegar or raw apple cider vinegar
2T raw mustard or whatever kind you use
pinch of sea salt
Blend all ingredients and pour over salad. We found if you serve the salad on a longer plate as shown in the picture, it's easier to keep all the ingredients mixed together instead of them going to the bottom of the bowl. Plus it looks nicer!
