While you may not be able to find strawberries for your sweetie at the market next weekend, there will be an abundance of kale and apples. We love this raw kale and apple salad, as it's seasonal, fresh, and delicious! It comes together in minutes and is a welcome addition to the dinner table during this dreary time of year.
Raw Kale & Apple Salad with Fontina and Lemon Vinaigrette
(Recipe courtesy of Rosemarried)
1 bunch of Lacinato Kale (also known as Dinosaur Kale, it has flatter leaves than your typical curly kale)
1 – 2 crisp apples
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup finely grated fontina cheese
The juice from 1 lemon
1/2 cup olive oil
Salt & pepper, to taste
1/2 tsp red chili flakes
Slice the kale very thinly, as if for a coleslaw. Core the apples and slice thinly. Toss the sliced apples with the raw kale. Mix together the lemon juice, cider vinegar, olive oil. Add in salt, pepper, and chili flakes.
Toss the raw kale and apple with the dressing – be sure to start light on the dressing and take care not to ‘overdress’ the salad. Toss in the fontina cheese. Adjust seasonings, if needed.
