Kale Salad with Maple-Poppyseed Dressing
Author: Aimee
Prep time: 2 mins
Total time: 2 mins
Admittedly, the appeal of this barely-dressed salad stems from my emotional attachment to that childhood lunch. We didn't have apples or oranges to jazz it up, but my mother's poppyseed dressing, sweetened with local honey, was enough.
  • 1 bunch kale, washed and dried
  • 1/4 cup Maple-Poppyseed Dressing (recipe below)
  • Add-ins of choice: See notes below
  1. Tear kale into a large bowl, using only the frilly green parts and discarding the tough stalks.
  2. Toss kale with vinaigrette and any add-ins you wish. Taste for final seasoning. Add salt and pepper as desired. Serve.
Feel free to add your own garnishes: chopped apple, toasted almonds, dried cranberries, ed onion slivers, orange slices, etc.
