Why I Love This Recipe

FEATURING: Kale and/or lettuce (or other leafy greens), rabioles or kohlrabi, radishes, cucumber and green onions. 

A recipe that takes no time to whip up and that everyone loves (around here, at least)! The dressing can be used on any salad!

NOTE: This dressing will keep for a week in a jar in your fridge. The oil will solidify a little; run the jar under warm water and give it a shake before using it.

Ingredients You'll Need

6 cups of leafy greens, loosely packed (ex: just kale or 2 cups kale, 2 cups lettuce and 2 cut rabioles leaves)
1/2 cucumber, diced in small cubes
1 rabioles, diced in small cubes
1-2 radishes, chopped (optional)
1/2 green onion, chopped

½ cup oil (sunflower or olive oil)
⅓ cup apple cider vinegar
¼ cup maple syrup
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 garlic cloves, minced and chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste


Remove the stems from the kale and set aside. Using the chiffonnade method, chop the kale and/or leafy greens in small ribbons. Chop the kale stem, as you would chop celery, and set aside.

Place all the ingredients into a 2-cup mason jar. Shake well until the ingredients are mixed together and the dressing is creamy.

ASSEMBLY: In a large bowl, add the kale and/or leafy greens. Add the chopped cucumbers, rabioles, radishes, chopped kale and green onions. Serve in small bowls and add a bit of vinaigrette to each bowl.
