salt and ground black pepper to taste
fresh kale, cut into bite-size pieces
apple cider vinegar
olive oil, or more to taste
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.
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.
Used spinach in place of kale (what I had in the fridge) and yellow beets. Also added the chevre before serving. Very good beat salad.
