This seriously delicious winter detox salad made with crunchy kale, red cabbage and crispy apples, topped with a zingy lemony ginger dressing is the only salad you will want to eat this winter.
While visiting my parents last week, I came up with the most amazing salad recipe. It was so delicious that my entire family went back for seconds and there wasn’t a kale leaf left in sight. I take salads very seriously! If I’m going to convince someone to eat a salad, especially a kale salad, it better taste amazing! What makes a salad amazing? For me it’s all about the balance of textures: crunch, creaminess and freshness.
I wanted to create the perfect salad to help you get those fresh greens and veggies into your day this winter. I know that when most people think of a salad they think lettuce, tomatoes and cucumbers. But when it comes to salads lately I’ve been all about the kale. Whether it’s green, purple, black or curly kale I will find a way to sneak it into my salad bowl. I love using kale in my salads because it’s so hearty and crunchy. Also, it never turns soggy which makes it great for meal prepping. It also provides a rich source of Vitamins A, C and K as well as fiber.
In my opinion this is the only salad you need to eat this winter. There are so many beautiful vibrant colours in this salad and I love the pop of sweetness from the crunchy apples and the creaminess from the avocados and pine nuts. I know I say this every time I create a new salad…that this is my new favourite salad…but this is definitely my new favourite winter salad and I hope it will be yours too.
If you love kale salads as much as I do, then you’re going to love my Harvest Glow Salad and my Apple Bacon and Kale Salad as well.
