• Cherry Kale Salad with Honey Lime Vinaigrette

    Cherry Kale Salad with Honey Lime Vinaigrette

    This simple salad is loaded with kale, almonds and cherries, and is packed to the brim with nutritious fibre, potassium and vitamin C and E! Add a filet of grilled salmon, chicken or tofu to the salad to make it a well-balanced entreé, or leave as is for a perfect side-dish. The honey lime vinaigrette really compliments the cherries and almonds; you may not need to use all of the dressing, so add as much as you like!

    Ingredients

     Salad Ingredients:
    • 5 c. lightly packed washed and torn kale
    • 1 ½ c. BC Tree Fruits cherries, cut in half and pitted
    • ½ c. sliced almonds, lightly toasted
    • 2/3 c. feta cheese, crumbled

    Dressing Ingredients:
    • Juice of 2 limes (approximately ¼ c.)
    • 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
    • 2 Tbsp. honey
    • 1 Tbsp. white wine vinegar
    • 1 clove garlic, crushed
    • ½ c. vegetable oil (ie: canola oil)

    Directions

    Mix all of the salad ingredients together in a large bowl. In a mason jar or large cup, combine the lime juice, Dijon mustard, honey, vinegar and garlic clove. Whisk together (Tip: an Aerolatte works perfectly to emulsify this dressing). Slowly add the vegetable oil while whisking. Drizzle the dressing over the salad (you may not use it all depending on your taste) and serve!
