Kale and Citrus Salad


Prep Notes

This is a Kimberton Whole Foods customer and staff favorite. They love this salad because it’s light and refreshing salad for the summer. The apples and pecans give it a nice crunchy flavor, while the dressing has hits of citrus.


Yields

2-4 side salads

Ingredients

SALAD

1 large head of kale

2 teaspoons of lemon juice

1/4 teaspoons Himalayan pink salt

20 toasted chopped pecans

1 diced green apple


DRESSING

1/4 cup OJ

4 oz thumb of peeled ginger

1 tablespoon of honey

2 tablespoons of toasted sesame seed oil

1/4 teaspoons of fennel seeds

Directions

Rinse kale, and remove the stem from the leaves, rip the leaves into small pieces. 

In a large bowl, massage kale leaves with lemon juice and Himalayan salt for 2-3 minutes. This will break down the cell walls of the kale making it softer and easier to digest. 


Next, mix the chopped green apple and toasted pecans into the salad.


To make the dressing simply blend together the orange juice, ginger, and honey in blender or food processor for a few seconds until smooth. Then turn the blender to a lower speed and slowly pour the sesame oil in a continuous stream and add fennel seeds.


Lastly, mix dressing into the salad and enjoy!
