Choose a bunch of fresh young kale. Walnuts could be substituted for the pine nuts in the recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dressing: Whisk together the oil, lemon juice, syrup, mustard, red pepper, salt and black pepper (this can be done in the bowl the salad will be served in).
  2. Salad: Rinse and dry kale in a salad spinner or kitchen towel. Remove and discard the tough stems from the kale. I fold the leaves in half and slice along the stem to seperate them from the leaf. Cut the leaves crosswise into 1/2 inch wide strips.
  3. Assembly: Pour the dressing into a serving bowl and whisk well. Add the kale and toss to coat the leaves thouroughly with dressing. Garnish with rasins and nuts.

This was great! The only change I made was adding a sliced apple and a few slices of onion to the mix! The dressing was unique and awesome!!!! Thanks!

This was a very nice (fast & easy) salad. I'm a newbie to kale salads and used fresh kale from my garden so I wasn't really sure how much I had and it turned out to be heavy on the dressing (so I guess I didn't put in enough kale) -- my fault. The dressing has a lovely balance of flavors (liked the maple syrup in there)! I think 932ninja's idea of adding apple and onion would be interesting too. Thanks.

I served this last night to my brother and sister-in-law. We all agreed that it was a really good salad. I will be making this again. I didn't have maple syrup or golden raisins, so I used honey and regular raisins instead. I always added a diced Gala apple.
