Kale, Orange & Almond Salad with Marmalade Dressing

Kale, Orange & Almond Salad

Serves 4 people

Ingredients:

  • 1 Bunch (about 5 cups) Curly Kale
  • 1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp Fresh Ginger, Minced
  • 1 Green Onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp Matador Marmalade (or any store prepared Marmalade)
  • A pinch (1/8 tsp)  Salt
  • A pinch (1/8 tsp) Black Pepper
  • 1 large Orange, peeled, segmented & cubed
  • 1/2 cup Roasted Almonds, chopped

 

 

Preparation:

  1. Remove and discard large center stem from kale leaves. Chop or tear leaves into bite-sized pieces and place in a large bowl.
  2. Fill the bowl with water, covering the kale and Swooshing leaves to remove dirt. Set aside to allow dirt to sink to the bottom.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine vinegar, oil, garlic, ginger, green onion, marmalade, salt and pepper.
  4. Carefully lift out the kale leaves from the water bath and place into a salad spinner or use a towel to dry.
  5. Transfer kale to a serving bowl. Drizzle the dressing over the kale, and using both hands, massage the dressing into the kale by picking up handful of leaves and rubbing them together.
  6. Massage leaves for 3 minutes. If the kale is still bitter, continue massaging for another minute or two, adjusting seasoning as needed.
  7. Toss in the orange cubes and the almonds until coated well with dressing.
  8. Divide salad between four bowls and serve.
