Every single time I make a salad I always make my own dressing and for this walnut apple kale salad it was no different. This time around I made one of my family’s favorite dressing, a dijon mustard salad dressing that is extremely easy to make and much economical and healthy than store bought.

The greens I used for this salad were Earthbound Farm Kale Italia blend. It is composed of baby kale, baby arugula, radicchio, and baby mizuna. These fresh, organic baby greens add bright color and deep flavor can be added to a wide array of recipes, from salads to sautés, pastas, risottos, pizzas and more.

  1. such a gorgeous salad.. love that you used kale for extra nutrients! Perfect for the summer1

  2. Once again, you’ve swayed me by using kale! I need to try this out now! Yum!  Also…cranberries + walnuts + feta = epic. 

  3. Not way I can find those kale leaves over here at this time of year..but I guess I can replace them with arugula. The salad looks totally delicious.

  4. Wow! I made this salad for my family and my son’s girlfriend said it was the best thing that I have ever made for her. With that vote of confidence I took it to my sonority weekend, AGD sisters for 40 plus years. Another set of raves, and I sent out your link. I’m not sure how I found you , but I’m sure it had to do with food :). After reading your blog the connections blew me away. My mom lives in Carlsbad too, but I have a dear friend with CF waiting for lungs that really drew me to you. I shared your blog with her today and I hope it gives her hope and strength.

  5. Hello Miryam, Your recipe is magnificent. I made it yesterday and my husband liked it. Thanks for sharing.
