Harvest Apple Chopped Salad

Harvest Apple Chopped Salad is everything that you could want in a simple salad recipe and more. Fresh, chopped kale is tossed with honeycrisp apples, dried cranberries, goat cheese crumbles, pumpkin seeds and a homemade honey mustard dressing. Each bite is bursting with flavor! A healthy salad recipe that makes the perfect meal or side dish.

First off, recipes like this salad are what we all need in life. It only requires a handful of ingredients, minimal prep time and creates a delicious outcome! The fact that is healthy and good for you is an added bonus. These features are what make it a perfect side dish for a holiday meal, family gathering, or your weeknight dinner table. Easily make it a complete meal by adding a protein – grilled or roasted chicken would be delicious!

Secondly, this salad gets better with time! That means it can be made in advanced and whipped out when you need it. How great is that? Allowing the salad to sit a little bit before serving allows the dressing to work on the kale a bit. It perfectly marniates the kale so that its not tough and rigid. Insider tip on kale: make sure that you remove the tough ribbing and stalks from the kale as the recipe calls for. That way you won’t have to do a bunch of unnecessary crunching!

Lastly, this is a kale salad that I actually got my husband to eat and love!! That’s a BIG deal! Which also vouches that this is a GOOD salad. Making a homemade dressing plays a big part in making this salad a homerun. Tossing it all together makes it pretty darn hard to beat.
