Vegan Kale Waldorf Salad
Did you know that May is National Salad Month? Here is an easy and very tasty recipe that I found on the Dr Oz show’s website last year. I’ve made it several times for myself and for my co-workers. Everyone who has tasted it has loved it. I love it because it is a great everyday salad or a delicious special occasion salad. Consider making it for a Thanksgiving holiday, a pot luck get-together. Trust me, when you make this, everyone will want the recipe!
3 tbsp vegan mayonaise
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tbsp lime juice
dash sea salt and black pepper
1 bunch organic kale, washed and leaves removed from stem
1 cup organic red grapes
1 cup chopped organic apple (I use a combination of both green and red and leave the skins on)
2 organic celery stalks cut on a diagonal
1/2 cup of chopped walnuts, pan-toasted
Whisk together the vegan mayo, mustard, lime juice, salt and pepper. Chop kale into small pieces. Pour dressing over the kale and massage for about 5 minutes. Toss the rest of the ingredients in and let sit for 15 minutes to let the flavors meld. Season with more salt and pepper if desired.
Salad ingredients tend to fall to the bottom of the bowl, so when serving be sure to grab the fruit and nuts from underneath the kale. Because the kale is so sturdy, the salad will be better the next day and will last up to 5 days in the fridge.
