Cranberry Kale Salad

kaleMy client, Jill gave me this recipe and I’ve already made it 4 times in the last month.  So, I thought it would be a great one to pass along.  It is a crowd pleaser 🙂  Even the kids enjoyed it.  It super easy and pretty presentation. The best part – you can make it the night before!
It also tastes great for days after too.





Salad Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp minced shallot
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup olive oil


  • 2 large bunches of Tuscan kale (washed, de-stemmed and chopped up small) – I don’t like to buy the bags already chopped because they have the big veins in it and its hard to pick them all out.
  • 10oz bag of shredded brussel sprouts (I buy from Trader Joes)
  • 1 cup Pecorino cheese, grated
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans this time and sometimes almonds)
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries

Combine salad dressing ingredients and whisk together.  Set aside.  Wash and de-stem kale, cut into bite size pieces. Mix in brussel sprouts, pecorino cheese and dressing.  Toss well.  Before serving add in cranberries and nuts.

    Love this and my husband who doesn’t like kale or brussel sprouts loves it, too. I also made it for a party and was a hit.
