Kale Slaw with Toasted Walnuts

We love this kale slaw and toasted walnuts because it is perfect serve as a side dish or as a main course for lunch.


Yield :

  •  6 servings | Serving size: 1 cup |

Ingredients :

  • ¼ cup minced walnuts
  • 1 bunch kale
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and shredded
  • 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup fruity extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher or sea salt salt, more to taste

Preparation :

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Place walnuts on a cookie sheet and toast until fragrant, about 10 minutes. Cool to room temperature.
  • Cut center stalk away from leaves and discard. Rinse kale and pat dry with a paper towel. Using a knife, cut kale leaves into thin strips. Add kale leaves, 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and ¼ teaspoon salt to a large mixing bowl. Using your hands, rub kale until it begins to wilt, about 3 minutes. Add carrot shreds, toss and set aside. 
  • Add to a blender, remaining red wine vinegar and olive oil along with honey, ginger, garlic, black pepper and kosher salt to taste, blend until combined. 
  • (Optional, if you prefer not to use your hands…steam kale just until wilted, add carrot shreds. Add all remaining ingredients, except walnuts, in a blender and blend until combined and smooth. Add to kale and carrots, toss to combine…sprinkle on walnuts). 
  • Add toasted walnuts to Kale, drizzle with dressing and toss to combine.
