Kettner Exchange Kale Salad {Copycat}

The kale salad at San Diego’s Kettner Exchange is arguably the best kale salad in town. I was so pleased with myself when I made a version that tasted just like it! This salad will make a kale lover out of anyone.

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch curly kale (Kettner uses purple kale)
  • 1/2 apple, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup cup golden raisins
  • 1/3 cup Marcona almonds (or sliced roasted almonds)
  • 2/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • DRESSING:
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil (Kettner Exchange uses lemon-flavored olive oil and probably uses at least 1/2 cup. I prefer it a little more acidic)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey (I like clover honey for salad dressing)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Dash of red pepper flakes

Instructions

1

Whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, honey, salt and pepper or place in a jar and shake well.

2

Shred the kale as finely as possible. Place in a salad bowl and gently massage the kale with your hands until it starts to break down.

3

Add the apples, almonds, raisins, parmesan, and dressing, and toss well to combine.

4

Allow to sit 5 minutes and toss again.
