Raw Baby Kale Salad with Apples and Sunflower Seeds
  • Category


  • Cusine



5 oz. mixed baby kale leaves

1 large apple

1/4 cup dry-roasted sunflower seeds

2 tsp. fresh-squeezed lemon juice

2 tsp. Dijon mustard

2 tsp. sweetener of your choice

1 tsp. white balsamic vinegar

2 T + 1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil


If you can’t find the mixed baby kale leaves I highly recommend Red Russian Kale for this salad instead of other kale varieties . If using Red Kale, cut away the rib in each leaf and chop the kale into bite-sized pieces. The baby kale does not need to be chopped. Whichever kale you use, if it is even a little bit wilted I would crisp it in a salad spinner with very cold water and then spin dry Mix together the white balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, and sweetener , and then whisk in the olive oil to make the dressing. Core the apple, cut into slices, and cut each slice into chunks. Put apple pieces in a small bowl and toss with about half the dressing, making sure each piece of the apple is coated with dressing. Put the kale into a bowl large enough to hold all the salad, add the rest of the dressing and toss to coat. Add the apples coated with dressing and sunflower seeds and toss again.
