Fall is here and we all need to eat apples! Try this kale and apple salad, topped with candied pecans and pumpkin seeds, and drizzled with a great apple cider vinaigrette.
Make the apple cider vinaigrette: in a mason jar, combine all vinaigrette ingredients. Cover and shake well to combine.
Make candied pecans: Heat a small skillet to medium-low meat. Melt brown sugar and water. Stir in pecans until coated with melted sugar. Add a pinch of salt. Transfer to a plate and let cool. When cooled, roughly chop the candied pecans.
Massage the kale: Place chopped kale in a large bowl. Add a drizzle of olive oil, 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar, and a pinch of salt. Using your hands, massage kale until softened. Add apples, pumpkin seeds, and candied pecans. Toss to combine.
Drizzle with some apple cider vinaigrette to taste and serve. Enjoy!
