Waldorf Kale Salad

Waldorf Kale Salad

Kale adds a healthy twist to the classic Waldorf salad. Rich in nutrients, including vitamins A and C, kale is one of the healthiest veggies around. And when you top it with a blend of fresh apples, red grapes, raisins and walnuts in a creamy dressing, the result is a salad everyone will love.


1 large apple
½ cup + 2 tablespoons red grapes
½ cup + 2 tablespoons walnuts, toasted, and chopped
¼ cup + 1 tablespoon raisins
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 ½ tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 bunch kale (roughly 7-8 ounces), chopped
½ cup celery, diced


Slice one apple in half; core and roughly chop half of the apple.
Put 6 grapes, ¼ cup walnuts, 1 tablespoon raisins, Dijon mustard, lemon juice and chopped ½ apple into a food processor. Puree the mixture until it forms a thick dressing.
Core and dice the remaining apple.
Add the kale to a serving dish and top with the apple pieces and celery; add remaining raisins, walnuts and grapes.
Pour the dressing over the salad and toss until salad is well coated.
If dressing appears too thick, add water or more lemon juice to thin as needed.
