I’ve never tried kale before, but when I saw this recipe on Budget Bytes, I had to try it out. So on my venture to the local ‘Farmer’s Market’ grocery store, which is basically a Trader Joe’s x 5, I picked up kale along with the other ingredients for the Apple Dijon Kale Salad recipe. Sunday night, I threw it all together, and it was delicious! The dressing is really yummy. I left out the garlic because I didn’t have a blender to use, but it still tastes really good. The apples, walnuts, and raisins complement the kale really well. And I would say my first foray into kale was a great success. Plus, I got two lunches out of it! My only difficulty was mixing it all together so that all the apple, walnut, and raisins didn’t fall to the bottom of the bowl, but I’m pretty sure that’s a result of my sub-par mixing skills and not a reflection of the recipe. Have you tried kale before?
