This Chopped Kale Salad with Creamy Goat Cheese, Apple, and Pumpkin Seeds is both beautiful and so quick and easy to make. If you don’t eat a lot of salad, a solution is to chop the salad greens into very small pieces- the greens become more tender and you get to savor the salad toppings (sweet apple, pear, crunchy pumpkin seeds, and creamy goat cheese) with every bite!


Ingredients


What (your ingredients):


I head kale


1 apple (Gala, Fuji, or Honeycrisp are best here)


1 pear


2 oz. goat cheese


2 tablespoons raw pumpkin seeds


Blackberry Ginger Vinaigrette:


2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil


2 tablespoons blackberry ginger vinegar (you can find at your local oil and vinegar store)


Pinch of salt


Pinch of pepper


Directions


How (your directions):


Wash kale and pull leaves away from the stems.  Discard stems.


Using a chef knife, chop kale into very small pieces.


Add kale to a large bowl.


Make the vinaigrette by adding the olive oil, blackberry ginger vinegar, salt and pepper to a jar.  Whisk or cover jar with lid and shake to combine.


Add the vinaigrette to the kale and massage the kale for 2 minutes.


Dice the apple and pear into bite-size pieces.


Add diced apple, pear, crumbled goat cheese, and pumpkin seeds to the dressed kale.


Toss to combine and enjoy immediately, or store in an airtight container for a grab-and-go lunch if you’re making the salad in the morning or night before.


Why (the science):  Most Americans don’t get enough magnesium in their diet.  Pumpkin seeds are very high in magnesium, which plays a role in reducing blood pressure, stabilizing blood sugar, reducing your risk of heart disease, and maintaining healthy bones.
