Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place kale in a large bowl. Drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil over kale and season with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Massage oil and salt into kale until evenly coated, adding more oil or salt if needed.

  • Mash garlic and 1/4 teaspoon salt together using a mortar and pestle until it forms a paste; add 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil and mix well. Spoon garlic mixture over kale.

  • Crush walnuts using the mortar and pestle until a granular texture forms; add to kale mixture. Pour lemon juice into mortar to loosen any remaining walnut and garlic pieces and pour over kale mixture. Mix kale mixture together using your hands until evenly mixed.

  • Mix wild rice, apples, dried cranberries, Italian cheese blend, sesame seeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds, flax seeds, and bread crumbs into kale mixture using your hands until salad is evenly combined. Transfer salad to serving bowls and top with blue cheese.

Cook's Note:

If you really love your greens, add some torn spinach or lettuce right before serving as they won't hold up well to massaging.

Tips

Mince the garlic with the salt if you don't have a mortal and pestle.

Tips

Substitute 1/2 cup cubed toast for the bread crumbs, if desired.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

This was fun. I left out the breadcrumbs and the cheeses (personal preference). I used brown rice and red quinoa and avocado oil. This tasted really good and I will be making variations of this again. Something wasn't right for me with the dressing...i will play around with it to make it my own. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

Adding the rice apples and cheese really makes this hearty. I didn't have hemp or flax seeds but otherwise stayed true to the recipe. I'd make this again next time I have leftover wild rice. Read More
