Ingredients

  • 4 Cups packed, finely chopped raw kale, preferably dinosaur kale
  • 1 large red apple, such as Fuji or Honeycrisp, chopped, divided
  • 1 Cup thinly sliced celery
  • 1/2 Cup walnuts, toasted and chopped, divided
  • 1/4 Cup plus 2 tablespoons raisins, divided
  • 2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 Tablespoons water, more if needed
  • 1 Tablespoon red-wine vinegar
  • 1/8 Teaspoon sea salt

Directions

Place kale in a large bowl. Add 1/2 the apple to kale along with celery, 1/4 cup walnuts, and 1/4 cup raisins. Put remaining apple in a blender along with remaining 1/4 cup walnuts, remaining 2 tablespoons raisins, mustard, water, vinegar, and salt. Purée until well combined and slightly thick, adding water if needed to thin. Pour dressing over kale salad and toss to combine.

Kale Shopping Tip

Buy green leafy vegetables like arugula, watercress, and collards – they are good sources of vitamins A, C, and K and minerals like iron and calcium.

Kale Cooking Tip

Brighten up sandwiches or salads with small, tender leaves like spinach and add larger, tougher leaves like kale to soups and stews.
