Salad Ingredients

  • 1 lb kale (stems removed)
  • 1 cup shredded carrot
  • 1 Fuji apple, diced
  • Handful of roasted salted peanuts (or almonds)

Dressing Ingredients

  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp white vinegar
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 ½ tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • Pinch of black pepper


Measure all dressing ingredients into a container with a lid. Shake to emulsify.

Toss the kale and carrots with about half the dressing. Let sit for 30 minutes so the kale has time to soften. Add the apple, toss, and taste. Add more dressing as needed. Transfer the salad to a serving bowl. Sprinkle with nuts before serving.
