1 shallot, minced
¼ cup (50 mL) PC Blue Menu Omega Oil
2 tbsp (25 mL) apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp (15 mL) honey
1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) salt
1/8 tsp (0.5 mL) freshly ground black pepper
1 pkg (142 g) PC Organics Baby Kale
2 PC Organics Piñata Apples, thinly sliced
¼ cup (50 mL) pumpkin seeds, toasted
¼ cup (50 mL) crumbled PC Blue Menu Goat’s Milk Cheese
Baby Kale Salad
If you're used to strongly-flavoured, too-tough-to-eat-raw, fully-grown kale, our baby kale will be a revelation! Tender and mild, it's perfect in a salad. Cider vinegar adds a nice bite.
Tip: If you'll be making this salad ahead of time, toss the sliced apples in the dressing at the end of step one; it will keep them from browning until you toss in the kale, pumpkin seeds and cheese.
To toast seeds (or nuts), place in a dry frying pan set over medium heat; cook for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, or until golden and fragrant. If the oven is already on, you can also toast them on a rimmed baking sheet at 350°F (180°C) for the same length of time.
