We’ve been making massaged kale salads for several years now, using whatever fruit is in season – peaches, mango, apples, oranges. All are very tasty, but our favorite is this salad made with dino kale, Cara Cara orange, pepitas and a light dressing of olive oil, lemon juice and honey. This salad is crunchy, tart, sweet, and citrusy, and it’s SO EASY to make…20 minutes or less.
It can be served with just about anything or alone as a meal. We really like it with spicy foods, like red chile enchiladas, because the sweet citrus helps to dampen the burn. It’s also a wonderful complement with grilled flank steak, smoked chicken or turkey, pork kabobs, and smoked beef tri-tip. It’s also a nice salad to take to picnics and potlucks because the kale leaves hold up to the dressing for quite a while.
