Fruit and Nut Summer Kale Salad Recipe

summer kale salad, paleo summer kale salad, citrus kale salad recipe Summer is finally here.

Bring on the summer salads.

This kale salad is hearty, yet light — loaded with a combination of dried and fresh fruit and toasted almonds — and is topped with a citrus-based, low-calorie dressing. Yum.

It’s one of my summer favorites — although, pretty much any kale salad is — and it’s really tasty on its own or topped with some grilled chicken or steak. Enjoy.

Fruit and Nut Summer Kale Salad Recipe

  •  3 TB coconut oil
  • 6 cups kale, stems removed, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup almonds, toasted and chopped
  • 1 apple, chopped (I usually use Golden Delicious or Pink Lady, but anything will do)
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • Juice of 1 orange
  • 2 TB red wine vinegar
  • 1 TB agave (you can substitute with raw honey, also)
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste

– Pour lemon juice over sliced kale and massage until slightly wilted, for about 10 minutes. Set aside.

– In a separate bowl combine juice of orange, coconut oil, red wine vinegar, agave and salt and pepper.

– Add apple, cranberries, almonds and dressing to kale and toss to coat. Serve immediately.
