Had everything in the house to make this for dinner except the kale. Going to substitute spring mix as I have a big Costco container of it. I have the dressing ready to go and its super yum! Thanks for the inspiration to eat more greens!


. There is no need to marinate the salad if using spring mix. Let me know how it turns out


Hi,Natasha. Sure looks good. Kale is very healthy for you and if u have low irion it helps too. What if I don’t have pears,what other fruit will work?


Hi Olga, that is a great point about iron in kale! Thank you for sharing that with us! You can use 2 apples instead and it will be just as delicious Reply


Thank you so much Sara!

This Autumn Kale Salad recipe is loaded with crisp apples, pears and crunchy pecans. The simple honey-lemon dressing coats every bite of this kale salad and makes it completely fresh, healthy and delicious! And it doesn’t hurt that kale is a superfood!


We completely LOVE that this Autumn Kale Salad is a make-ahead salad. Most green leaf salads must be eaten soon after they are made but this one just gets better with time! I recommend letting the kale marinate with the dressing for 4 hours or overnight. We’ve enjoyed this salad after 2 hours but the leaves are softer and and just right after marinating 4 hours. PS. The lemon dressing preserves the fruit so leftovers of this kale salad are still very tasty the next day – perfect for a work or school lunch!


Ingredients for Kale Salad Dressing:


4 Tbsp fresh lemon juice


2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil


1 Tbsp honey (or sugar)


1/2 tsp salt (we used sea salt)


1/8 tsp black pepper, freshly ground


Ingredients for Kale Salad:


1 bunch (8 cups loosely packed) kale, well rinsed


1 cup craisins (dried cranberries)


1 small red onion, thinly sliced


1 crisp apple (I used fuji)


1 ripe, firm pear


1 cup pecans, toasted on a dry skillet


How to Make Autumn Kale Salad:


1. Combine all dressing ingredients and stir together until honey dissolves. Tip: If your honey doesn’t dissolve readily, you can place the bottom of your dressing container into a bowl of hot water to warm it slightly, which should do the trick!


2. Rinse and strip kale leaves (hold the stem in one hand and pull the leaves off with the other). 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 them in a salad spinner.


3. Place kale in a salad bowl, top with 1 cup dried cranberries and drizzle the top with dressing. Use your hands or a large spoon to stir well. Cover and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.


4. Before serving, top with sliced apples, sliced pears, thinly sliced onions and toasted pecans. Toss to combine.
