Kale, Apple and Cheese Salad with Lemon Dressing
Kale is one of those vegetables that last long into the fall months in the garden. I fresh picked a handful for my salad tonight. Here is a simple salad with kale.
1 large handful of kale
1 large apple, I like honey crisp, zestar, sweet tango (the sweeter compliments the other ingredients)
1/2 cup mixed shredded cheese- I used a Irish cheddar and sharp cheddar
1/4 cup toasted almond slices
Place all above into a large salad bowl. Then make dressing.
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- Salt & pepper to taste
- 1 very small garlic clove, puréed or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 5-6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan
- a touch of honey
Mix all ingredients in a mason jar, shake and pour over salad.
