This salad is not only delicious and festive, but it is jam-packed full of nutrient dense foods to boot. It’s a perfect side dish or “heavy appetizer” to bring with you to a Holiday Party. Everyone loves the tangy flavor and it also looks great out on the serving table.
- 6 cups of chopped kale
- 1 cup of fresh cranberries
- 1/2 cup of almond slices
- 2 TBSP of Apple Cider Vinegar
- 4 TBSP avocado oil
- 2 TBSP unsweetened cranberry juice
- 1/4 tsp of salt
- 1/4 tsp ground pepper
- 1/8 tsp onion powder
Place the kale in a large bowl and add the apple cider vinegar. Mix the kale until it is well coated. Massage the kale for a few minutes to encourage softening. (Pro tip: If you want to keep your hands clean, you can place the kale and vinegar in a ziplock bag before massaging.) Let the kale sit for 30 minutes and massage again.
Add the avocado oil, cranberry juice, salt, pepper, and onion powder to a small blender. Blend the mixture in high until it creates a creamy dressing.
Toss the kale, cranberries, and almonds in the dressing.
That’s it! Enjoy!
