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.
