Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Trim roots and stems from beets. Coat beets with 1 tablespoon olive oil and sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Place beets onto prepared baking sheet.
  3. Roast beets for 30 minutes; turn beets over and continue roasting until tender, 30 minutes to 1 hour more. Let beets cool. Peel skins from beets and cut into 1-inch cubes. Toss cooked beets with kale, cashews, dried cherries, and golden raisins in a large salad bowl.
  4. Whisk apple cider, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, garlic, and cider vinegar in a bowl. Slowly drizzle 2 tablespoons olive oil into apple cider mixture, whisking constantly, until dressing is combined. Pour dressing over salad and toss to coat. Refrigerate at least 1 hour for flavors to blend before serving.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • You can add chevre (goat) cheese right before serving if you would like to add a creamy texture. This salad is even great the next day as kale holds its firmness quite well!

Incredibly delicious! I will make this again and again. I didn't have apple cider so I used apple juice. Also because of what I had, used pecans and pine nuts in place of cashews, regular raisins, and dried cranberries. I massaged the kale a bit with a drizzle of olive oil and salt before mixing with other items because I like my kale a bit softer. Great recipe and super versatile. The beets were a wonderful complement to the kale.

Takes a while to prepare since the beets need to roast over an hour. But they are soooooo good roasted! I'm not a big kale fan, it is bitter. I used almonds, walnuts and cashews. Not crazy about the cashews, next time leave out. I'll submit another review after it sits awhile.

I was surprised at how much better it was the next day when the flavors really came together. I made a few changes, only because I didn't have all the ingredients on hand, but they were slight. I used pecans instead of cashews and used regular raisins instead of golden, and used craisins instead of dried cherries. The roasted beets were delicious in this salad, and a great way to use up the beets from the garden. I also added about 2-3 extra beets. One other change was to the method of prep: I poured dressing (only used about 1/2) on just the kale and massaged the dressing onto the kale with my fingers. I do this with another kale salad and it really softens the kale, but doesn't make it soggy. Then I added the remaining ingredients. Thanks for the recipe!

Left out the raisins and substituted fresh grapes for the cherries.

Fantastic! Even my husband, who normally dislikes kale, loved it.

I made this exactly as written and massaged the dressing into the kale like others suggested. I did toss in some chèvre. I was not a believer in eating raw kale until I tried this salad. My husband also said he loved the flavor and texture better than "regular salad". Thanks for sharing!

This is just wonderful! I used kale and beets that I got from our CSA. Our bunch of kale was rather small, so I added some spinach as well. Absolutely delicious!

So fresh and delicious. I love beets and this salad was so tasty. Ate it as a main course for lunch and dinner. Very nutritious too.
