Fruit + nut jam salad2013-07-31
- Yield : 2 large side salads
- 3 cups chopped lacinato kale
- 3 cups chopped baby spinach
- 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
- 10 sweet cherries, halved + pitted
- 2 handfuls of blueberries
- shaved red onion
- salt + pepper
For the dressing:
2-3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon all-fruit jam
pinch of salt
Set out the tablespoon of jam first thing to help soften.
Mix kale + spinach together and portion between 2 bowls.
Divide fruit + nuts and place on top along with the shaved onion, a pinch of salt, and pepper.
Place 2T lemon juice, olive oil, jam, and salt in a jar and shake [or whisk in a bowl] until completely combined. There may be some small pieces of fruit/pulp in the dressing that don’t combine. If there are large pieces of fruit in your jam try to leave those out.
Taste and add more lemon juice if desired. I used 3T.
Pour the dressing + serve.
Notes: Be sure to use jam, not jelly. Goat cheese would be an excellent addition if not vegan.
