John’s Kale Salad

Salad
  • 2 bunches of kale (different kinds add visual interest)
  • 1 Honey crisp apple
  • 1 red onion
  • 5-6 true cloves of garlic
  • sliced/crushed nuts of your choice (I usually do walnuts or almonds)
  • blue cheese or sharp white cheese or gorgonzola. Something sharp!

Dressing
  • 3/4 cup Olive oil
  • 2 tbsp Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • 2 tbsp Fancy mustard
  • Lemon 
  • Honey

  1. Roast the roots. Chop the onions long, rough dice the garlic. Preheat oven to 425, toss alliums with salt + pepper + oil. Roast 15-20 minutes, until crispy.
While that roasts...

2. Chop everything else. De-stem, chop or tear the kale. Massage kale. Chop apple and dice cheese if need be.

3. Dress up. Vigorously whisk the following together
  • 3/4 cup Olive oil
  • 2 tbsp Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • 2 tbsp Fancy mustard
  • Lemon + Honey
  • Salt + Pepper if you'd like

Combine everything in a big bowl.

Good for leftovers, easy and savory to eat.
