Apple and Kale Salad

IMG_1427.JPG

  • 1 Bunch Purple Kale
  • 1 Granny Smith Apple
  • 1 Red Delicious Apple
  • 1 Small Yellow Onion
  • 2 TBsp Apple Cider
  • 2 TBsp Lemon Juice
  • 4 TBsp olive oil
  • salt, Pepper, Cinnamons
  • 1/4 Cup raisins
  • Fall is a really exciting time for recipes. I find myself lightyears more inspired by fall flavors. Sure, Summer is full of fruits and colorful veggies, but my heart stays in the cooler months. Apple season is starting up, so I felt inspired to create a recipe based on a tried and true combination of delicious, healthy, goodness: Apples and Kale. Raisins, and a touch of apple cider, add some extra sweetness. Remember, apples are part of the dirty dozen, so always try to buy organic (and even better if you pick them yourself!)

    After rinsing the kale, I tore it into small pieces, smaller than I normally would for salad. I tossed the thick stemmy parts to my dog (optional of course), then I Tossed about a quarter of the kale leaves in my food processor, along with the apples, onion, and liquids. I pulsed until everything was very finely chopped. You can skip this step if you don’t have a food processor, but then remember to chop everything up pretty small. I poured it into the bowl with the kale, added the raisins and seasoned, and then stirred with a rubber spatula until everything was combined.
