Ingredients

FOR THE VINAIGRETTE

  • 1 orange juiced
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped

FOR THE SALAD

  • 1 bunch kale, chopped with stems removed
  • Shredded Brussels sprouts, approximately 3 cups
  • 2.5 carrots, grated (approximately 1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup green onions, chopped
  • 1 cup red grapes, halved
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup pepitas
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1-2 avocados, pit removed and slieced
  • 1/2 cup Herbed goat cheese, crumbled

Instructions

  • First prepare the vinaigrette- place all ingredients for the vinaigrette (except for the parsley) in the bowl of a small food processor or blender and process until fully combined. Add the parsley to the food processor and pulse a few times, or just until the parsley is finely minced and fully incorporated. Set aside.
  • In a large salad bowl toss together the chopped kale, shredded Brussels sprouts, carrot and green onion. Pour 2 tablespoons of the prepared vinaigrette onto the salad and, using clean hands,┬ámassage the dressing into the salad (you're basically just mixing the dressing in really well since kale is a thicker leafy green).
  • Into the same bowl as the kale and Brussels sprouts add the grapes, blackberries, red onion, pepitas, and dried cranberries. Gently toss to combine.
  • Drizzle each salad with remaining vinaigrette and top with sliced avocado and goat cheese, if desired.
