Kale, Spinach, Apple, and Strawberry Salad

Kale, Spinach, Apple, and Strawberry Salad

I had kale and spinach leftover from other dishes I made and didn’t really know what to do with them. So, their super powers merged into this light summer salad! Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 4 cups shredded, fresh kale
  • 4 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 4 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp honey
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 Honeycrisp apple, diced
  • 1/2 cup sliced strawberries, blueberries, dried cherries, or other fruit of choice

Directions

  1. Massage kale with 1 Tbsp of olive oil and 1/2 tsp of salt in a large bowl until the kale softens slightly.
  1. Whisk remaining 3 Tbsp olive oil, lemon juice, and sugar, and honey together to complete the vinaigrette.
  1. Combine softened kale, spinach, apple, strawberries (or other desired fruit), grated parmesan, and walnuts. Serve topped with shredded Parmesan cheese, if desired.
