This delicious Kale Apple salad is dressed with a tasty sweet honey vinaigrette. Pops of feta cheese and cranberries laced throughout add tangy flavor. This healthy salad is Low-Sodium and Gluten-Free.
The time has come to gather all the produce from the garden and start making delicious side dishes and salads with it! I’m a closet salad lover. For all of the cupcakes and delicious casseroles I make, I really do enjoy a nice crunchy salad that’s bursting with flavor along with my carbs.
I had my gallbladder taken out a few years ago after it went south on me while I was in the military. Ever since my surgery, I have a really hard time digesting foods with a higher fat content or foods that are at all greasy.
This salad is just the ticket for clean eating! It’s very filling, light and healthy!
You can make this salad any way you would like. It’s a versatile recipe with easy to change around ingredients. I like apples, pecans, kale, and cranberries, so I kept all of those lovely ingredients.
When I make it in the future I might try adding a bit of pear to it as well! The vinaigrette dressing is awesome! It’s a light, sweet dressing that pairs beautifully with the kale and the other ingredients.
