Shaved Apple and Kale Salad Recipe



Yield 6

This light and delicious salad is perfect for fall. Full of sweet flavors, crunchy pecans, and nutrient dense kale, it makes a great side or a full meal if you top with chicken. 


For the Vinaigrette:

For the Salad:


  1. Make the vinaigrette by whisking together all the ingredients for the vinaigrette. 
  2. Use the wide blade of a spiralizer to thinly slice the apples into ribbons and place in a small bowl.
  3. Pour the vinaigrette over the apples and toss to coat. Let sit 2 minutes to keep apples from browning.
  4. Meanwhile, de-stem the kale and tear or chop into small pieces.
  5. Place the kale in a large bowl and massage it with your hands for about a minute until it just starts to soften and wilt. This makes it much more tender in a salad.
  6. Add apples and vinaigrette to the bowl with kale.
  7. Add pecans and red onions and toss to combine.
  8. Serve and enjoy!


Spiralize zucchini, carrots, or sweet potatoes for a new spin on veggies, literally!

No spiralizer? Thinly slice apples with a knife or mandolin.
