Apple Kale Salad with Blue Cheese Crumbles

Apple Kale Salad with Blue Cheese Crumbles


Balsamic Vinaigrette

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1/2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • freshly cracked pepper



  • Make the balsamic vinaigrette first, so the flavors have time to blend. Add dressing ingredients to a jar, close tightly and gently shake until well combined. Set aside.
  • Add torn kale leaves to a large bowl. Add about 2 Tbsp of the balsamic vinaigrette and massage the dressing into the kale leaves for about 2 minutes. The kale will wilt to about half the volume.
  • Slice apple into thin pieces and arrange on top of the massaged kale. Top with desire nuts and crumbled blue cheese.
  • Enjoy immediately!
