Kale Waldorf Salad

This version of the classic salad replaces iceberg lettuce with heart-healthy kale, and the mayonnaise with a delicious oil-free blended dressing. Makes 1 to 2 main-course or 3 side salads.

page 144 of Eat Raw, Eat Well

1⁄4 cup    raw cashews, soaked
2 cups    thinly sliced kale     
2 tbsp    cold-pressed (extra virgin) olive oil    
1⁄4 cup    lemon juice    
1 tbsp    apple cider vinegar
2 tsp    fine sea salt    
1 cup    thinly sliced tart apple
1⁄2 cup    thinly sliced celery
1⁄2 cup    filtered water    
1⁄2 cup    walnuts (halves or pieces )
1⁄4 cup    raisins    

FIRST> In a bowl, toss together kale, olive oil, 2 tsp (10 mL) lemon juice, 1 tsp (5 mL) cider vinegar and 1 tsp (5 mL) salt. Set aside to soften for 10 minutes. Transfer to a serving dish.

NEXT> In a blender, combine 1⁄2 cup apple, 1⁄4 cup celery, water, soaked cashews and remaining lemon juice, vinegar and salt. Blend at high speed until smooth and creamy. Pour over softened kale. Add walnuts, raisins and remaining apple and celery and toss. Set aside to marinate for 5 minutes. Serve immediately.

KALE TIP: Before chopping the kale, remove the long stem that runs up through the leaf almost to the top of the plant. Use only the leafy green parts. The key is to cut the kale very finely to allow it to soften properly.
