Kale Salad w/ Lemon Dressing

This Autumn Kale salad is loaded with crisp apples, pears and crunchy pecans. The simple honey-lemon dressing coats every bite and makes it completely fresh, healthy and delicious!


Ingredients for Salad Dressing:

Ingredients for Kale Salad:

  • 1 bunch kale (8 cups loosely packed) well rinsed
  • 1 cup craisins dried cranberries
  • 1 small red onion thinly sliced
  • 1 apple (I used a crisp fuji apple)
  • 1 pear (firm)
  • 1 cup pecans toasted on a dry skillet


  1. Combine all dressing ingredients and stir together until honey dissolves then set aside.
  2. Rinse and strip kale leaves. Chop in bite-sized pieces. I rinse the chopped leaves a second time to ensure there isn’t any dust hidden in the curly leaves then dry in a salad spinner.
  3. Place kale in a salad bowl, top with 1 cup craisins and drizzle with dressing. Use hands to stir well and massage lightly until kale just starts to wilt. Cover and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.
  4. Before serving, add sliced apples, sliced pears, thinly sliced onions and toasted pecans. Toss to combine.
