You’ve heard me sing the praises of kale in my kale & cranberry crisps post. What can I say, I just love the stuff!
I never used to be a fan of raw kale and I often hear people say the same, but it’s all about how the kale is prepared. This Kale-Dorf Salad is a spoof of the traditional Waldorf salad, originally created in New York’s Waldorf Hotel in the late 1800’s. Waldorf salad is traditionally made of fresh apples, celery and walnuts, and dressed in mayonnaise. So of course, adding such a nutrient powerhouse of a food to an old favourite is brilliant!
I used purple kale for this salad because not only is it delicious, it’s incredibly attractive! I love the chewiness and sweetness of the dried dates and cranberries and the zing from the slightly creaming (but light) dressing.
You’ll find kale at almost any grocery store or farmer’s market, as it’s available and in season for most of the year!
