January is the time of the year when I'm always looking for new salad ideas. After indulging over the holidays, it's so nice to throw together some fresh ingredients that are delicious as well!

Luckily, with a few simple ingredients, this kale salad is absolutely one of the easiest dishes to make at home!

Apple Kale Salad

I have to be honest with you, I have been a fan of kale for a while now! I had it while I was pregnant with Reuben and it was a bad experience! There was something about the texture that just didn't sit right with me. During pregnancy my taste buds get completely messed up, so really, it wasn't the kale's fault!

Have you ever tried growing kale? It's SO EASY! Last year I really began gardening and kale was one of the first things I tried and was completely successful with.

I highly recommend picking up a pack of kale seeds and trying them yourself. I liked the Dwarf Blue Curled Vates variety, but Dinosaur Kale is a great variety to try if you have kids - just make sure you have the space as Dinosaur Kale can grow quite big!

I honestly cannot tell you how absolutely delicious the tangy dijon dressing tastes along with the kale and the apples and walnuts! This raw kale salad was the perfect lunch salad for us, but I am definitely planning on making a double batch if I'm bringing it to a friend's house!
