Peachy Keen Kale Salad

This beautiful peachy kale salad will be a hit at your dinner table or a potluck!

It’s no secret that I like kale.

I’m surprised I haven’t bought one of those “Eat More Kale” shirts yet!

It can get boring to eat kale the same way all the time (juice from 2 lemons + 1-2 T olive oil + a few hefty shakes of nooch + a sprinkle of sea salt + black pepper massaged into the kale leaves), so I like to change it up throughout the year and try new recipes to keep things exciting.

Check out this video to see how you can quickly and easily “destem” kale as you prep this salad 🙂

This salad is SO easy to make and gave me an excuse to use the sweet, juicy and flavor-filled local peaches that were in our Hometown Harvest bag this week.

The basic ingredients are kale, peaches, and red onions. Easy, right? The dressing isn’t much more than that – another peach, olive oil, water and apple cider vinegar (whose health benefits I’ve raved about.)

Make sure you let the kale sit for at least 30 minutes to soak in all the flavors. We stored ours in the fridge overnight, and the flavors came together beautifully for dinner the next day.

You have to try it for yourself – it’s so yummy and will be a hit if you bring it to a summer party or cookout!

Peachy Keen Kale Salad

This beautiful peachy kale salad will be a hit at your dinner table or a potluck!

Ingredients

2 bunches kale, stems removed (I’ve used curly, but Dino or Lacinato would work)
1/2 red onion, diced
1 ripe peach, pitted and chopped

Peach Vinaigrette:

1 ripe peach, pitted and chopped
2 tablespoons raw apple cider vinegar (Bragg’s raw apple cider vinegar with “the mother”)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon honey (optional)
1/4 teaspoon salt

Combine the chopped peach, vinegar, oil, water, honey (if using), and salt in a blender, and blend until completely smooth. If the peach you’re using is particularly sweet and juicy, you may not need the honey, which is why it’s optional.
