Daytime Recipes Kale Salad

Posted: Updated:
Kale Salad with Rum Cherries
Serves 4

1/2 cup dried cherries
1/4 cup good rum
1 pound kale leaves, stem discarded and chopped
1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
juice from 1 lemon
1 teaspoon grainy mustard
2 tablespoons good quality olive oil
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon water
freshly ground black pepper
1 pear, cored and diced
handful sliced almonds

An hour or up to overnight before, soak the cherries in the rum. 

Place the kale in a large bowl and sprinkle the salt over. Use your hands to "massage" the kale leaves for 2 minutes, using a rubbing and kneading motion. The kale leaves should soften and turn bright green. Discard any tough stems that you might find.

In a mason jar, add the lemon juice, mustard, honey, water, olive oil and pepper. Close lid tightly and shake. 

In a salad bowl, toss together the kale, diced pear, soaked rum cherries with the dressing. Top with almonds.
