Kale Slaw

I know, I promised to post this a month ago and just now have gotten around to it!  



Kale Slaw

for salad:
1 bunch lacinato kale, cut into shreds  > approx. 3 cups
7-10 medium brussel sprouts, cut into shreds > approx. 2 cups
1 cup toasted nuts, chopped (pecans, almonds or hazelnuts)
1 pink lady apple

for dressing:
1/2 large shallot, finely chopped
2 tbls cider vinegar
2 tbls lemon juice
1 tsp sugar
3 tbls olive oil
1-1/2 tsp dijon mustard
salt & pepper

First, in a hot, dry skillet, lightly toast the nuts over medium high heat until golden. Set aside to cool. Shred kale and brussel sprouts and combine together in a large salad bowl. Julienne the apple and add them and the cooled nuts to the greens. Toss lightly.






Make the dressing by whisking all ingredients together or shaking them in a mason jar (see above.)
You may need to add more sugar or seasoning to taste. For an added kick, seed and mince 1/2 a serrano chile and add it to the dressing mixure.

Pour emulsified dressing over greens and toss. It's ready!
