Every time I take this salad to a cookout or a picnic, I get rave reviews.

Kale, apple and bacon salad recipe

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 2 red apples, cut into long slices
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 8 ounces kale, washed and torn into bite-sized pieces
  • 6 slices bacon, crumbled
  • 1/3 cup toasted walnuts
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoon finely chopped shallots (I usually use onions)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 cup olive oil

Directions:

  1. Add cut apples to a small bowl with lemon juice. Toss to coat apples in the juice. This will help keep them from turning brown.
  2. In a large salad bowl, add kale, apples, bacon and walnuts.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, maple syrup, mustard, shallots, salt and pepper. Slowly drizzle in olive oil while whisking to create a smooth and creamy dressing.
  4. Drizzle dressing over salad and toss to combine. Store any remaining dressing in the refrigerator.
