Ingredients

Dressing

  • 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Salad

  • 4 cups finely chopped kale ~1 bunch
  • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped purple cabbage
  • 3/4 cup dried berries and/or tart cherries
  • 1/2 cup shelled frozen edamame thawed
  • 1/2 cup shelled raw sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup mung bean or other sprouts
  • 2 finely chopped Granny Smith apples
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Make the dressing by combining oil, vinegar, garlic power, and salt in a lidded jar, and shake well to combine. Set aside until ready to use.
  • To make the salad, combine all the remaining ingredients, and pour 1/2 cup dressing (you may add more or less to suit your taste) over ingredients. Toss well, then season with salt and pepper, and serve.

Notes

  • I used a combination of tart cherries, blueberries, and raspberries for my dried fruit.
  • You will have dressing left over.
  • This salad will keep well for a day or two, especially if you add the dressing right before serving.
