Prep Time15 mins
Total Time15 mins
For the Salad:
- 3 organic apples
- 6 cups kale
- 1 cup pecans lightly toasted and chopped
- ½ of a small red onion very thinly sliced (optional)
Make the vinaigrette by whisking together all the ingredients for the vinaigrette.
Use the wide blade of a spiralizer
to thinly slice the apples into ribbons and place in a small bowl.
Pour the vinaigrette over the apples and toss to coat. Let sit 2 minutes to keep apples from browning.
Meanwhile, de-stem the kale and tear or chop into small pieces.
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.
Add apples and vinaigrette to the bowl with kale.
Add pecans and red onions and toss to combine.
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.
