This slightly sweet and crunchy combination makes a satisfying luncheon salad or festive first course for a holiday meal. The lemon tenderizes the kale, transforming it into a delightful alternative to your everyday green salad. Pair this appealing dish with crusty bread to enhance the delicate flavors.


  • 3 Tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 6-8 cups very thinly sliced, lightly packed curly kale, washed and dried
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries or dried cherries
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • Sea salt, to taste (optional)
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste (optional)


  • To make the dressing, put the lemon juice and maple syrup in a small bowl and briskly whisk until smooth.
  • Put the kale, cranberries (or cherries), and walnuts in a large bowl. Pour about three-quarters of the dressing over the salad and toss gently until the kale, cranberries (or cherries), and walnuts are evenly coated. Taste and add the remaining dressing, if desired.
  • Cover and let stand at room temperature for about 20 minutes before serving. Just before serving, top with a few grinds of sea salt and pepper, if desired.
