Kale, an excellent source of fiber and magnesium, is the perfect fit for a salad. This hardy leafy green is strong enough that you could keep it dressed for up to a day. This delicious salad bursts with dried cherries and crunchy marcona almonds.



  • 2 lb raw kale
  • 6 tbsp Juice, Lemon
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Vinegar, White Wine
  • 1 tbsp Whole Grain Mustard
  • 1 tbsp Basil, fresh
  • 1/8 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1/8 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 cup Dried Cherries
  • 1 cup Marcona Almonds


1 Clean and slice the kale into 1/3-inch wide shreds.
2 In a large bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, olive oil, vinegar, mustard, basil, salt and pepper until it emulsifies.
3 Dress the kale in a large bowl. Use your hands to gently massage the kale between your fingers and palms. Mix and massage thoroughly for 5 minutes until you’ve made your way through the entire bowl.
4 Add dried cherries and marcona almonds and toss thoroughly. Let the salad stand 5 minutes then serve.
