If you’re looking for a healthy and delicious salad for the festive season, give this blanched kale salad a go:



6 large stalks of kale

1⁄4 cup walnuts chopped

1⁄4 cup sliced almonds

1⁄4 dried cranberries



In a jar mix together

2 Tbsp. cold pressed extra virgin olive oil

2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar

1 tsp. dijon mustard

1 tsp. maple syrup or raw honey

Salt and pepper



1. De-stalk the kale and blanch the leaves in boiling water for 30 seconds, then quickly drain kale leaves in a colander and run cold water over it immediately to cool.

2. Once cooled make sure to wring out all the water.

3. Add this to a large bowl and toss through roughly chopped walnuts, sliced almonds and dried cranberries.

4. In a jar make up the salad dressing. Pour this over the salad and season with additional salt and pepper to taste.
