Apple Date Kale Salad

IMG_8222

Hard to believe how good this salad is. I took this from the web but cannot find the original website.  It was served with a piece of salmon cooked in a frying pan.  To save on the calories, I lightly oil the fish, added a fish rub and baked for about 15-20 minutes at 375 in my toaster if making just 1-2 pieces.  If 4 pieces I cook in my oven.

Salad – serves 4.

Ingredients:

3 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice (1-2 lemons)

2 tablespoons of good olive oil (for salad); more for oil if adding fish.

1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt

1 large bunch of kale  1 large bunch,  wash & remove the center rib and slice thinly the leaves

1/4 cup of dates (small dice)

1 honey crisp apple (very small dice) – I like to peel my apple.

1/4 cup finely grated pecorino cheese

3 tablespoons toasted slivered almonds.  I toasted these for 2 minutes on a piece of foil in my toaster.

Fresh ground black pepper.

Directions:

Whisk/shake lemon juice, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, salt in a jar.

Pour over kale, toss, and let stand for 10 minutes

As kale is marinating, dice your figs and apples.

Add fruit, grated cheese, and almonds to kale.

Season with pepper, toss well, and let sit a few more minutes before serving.

Serve over salmon or serve just the salad.

 

Salmon:

4   5-6 oz pieces of salmon good cut

1 tablespoon of oil

fish rub or just use salt and pepper

Preheat oven or toaster to 375.

Spread oil and rub on fish.

Bake 15-20 minutes until desired doneness.
