Author Notes: This is the best kale salad I have ever tasted: savory, sweet, garlicky and crunchy, I can’t think of a better way to end the work day, or perhaps start the weekend. —tingroo
Rich & Nutty Kale SaladPrint Recipe
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons good quality olive oil
- 1 pinch sea salt
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice (about 1/2 a lemon)
- 1 bundle of curly kale
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- 1/4 cup plump, dried cranberries
To make the dressing, whisk together garlic, olive oil, sea salt and lemon juice till emulsified. Alternatively you could use a food processor, but I found whisking worked out just fine.
Combine the remaining ingredients in a large bowl, pour over dressing, and toss well to combine. Allow salad to rest in the fridge for about 10-15 minutes before digging in – this allows the kale to “relax” and take in the flavors.
