Apple and Kale Salad with Mustard Vinaigrette

It’s been a busy week. And salad is all I had time to make.

Ok, that’s not entirely true. I made a whole lot more for, for a whole lot of people but this is all I had time for when it came to whipping up a quick dinner. I finally took the plunge and launched my own food consulting business- focusing on Indian Tapas! I am as super excited as nervous about this new step in life, and can’t wait to keep learning along the way. You can read all about it here.

Anyway, back to the salad. So this salad happened as an effort to feed myself amidst all the crazy preps for my launch. I love mixed flavors like sweet and tangy in salads, so this worked very well for me. I threw in apples, walnuts, some cheese, lots of veggies and even more Kale…and voila!

People say you’re a New Yorker when you learn to eat Kale. Actually, more so when you learn what Kale is. I’m almost there.
