  • 1 lb. kale
  • 1 large semi-sweet apple
  • cup roasted almonds

Dressing Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 garlic clove
  • ½ tsp. salt or to taste


  • Remove the stalks from the kale and discard. Roll the kale up into a bunch and slice the leaves thinly.
  • Place the kale leaves into a large mixing bowl. Add the salt and massage the leaves until the kale starts to soften and wilt, about 2-3 minutes. 
  • Add the olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic to the kale. Stir well and set aside.
  • Peel and core the apple. Dice it into small pieces and add them to the salad. Stir everything well.
  • Transfer the salad into a serving bowl and sprinkle the nuts on top. Serve.




Roasting nuts is really very easy. Here are two ways to do it:
  • Roast almonds in the oven. To do this, preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and place the almonds on a baking sheet. Roast them for 10-15 minutes if they are whole almonds (8-12 for sliced almonds). Then allow them to cool.
  • Roast almonds in a skillet. Spray the skillet with cooking spray and then roast the almonds over medium-high heat for about 15 minutes, stirring them occasionally with a spatula.
Either method works great and you can make as much as you like, storing any extra in an airtight container for your next amazing Kale Salad.
