  • Honey Walnut Dressing (makes about 1 cup):
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. raw honey
  • 1/2 tsp. salt + more to taste
  • water, to thin
  • Salad:
  • 4 cups of chopped kale (I used lacinato, but any type will work)
  • a few pinches of salt
  • 1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small apple, cored and cubed (about 1 cup)
  • 1 cup cubed pineapple
  • 2 stalks celery, split lengthwise and chopped
  • 1/3 cup of the dressing, or more to taste
  • dried cranberries and walnut pieces to garnish



Step 1

To make the dressing, process the walnuts in a food process until very finely ground.
Add the honey, salt, and vinegar and continue to process until really smooth.
Add water, about 1 Tbsp. at a time to reach the desired consistency.
To make the salad, start by massaging the chopped kale with a few pinches of sea salt and olive oil. Add the apple, pineapple, and celery, then toss with 1/3 cup of the dressing. Reserve remaining dressing for later use. Top with walnuts and cranberries.
Makes about 2 servings.
