Turn your kale salad into a fall feast with apple chips, pecans, truffled croutons and apple cider vinaigrette
Salads don’t have to be a plate of boring lettuce leaves. It's easy to spruce up a salad with flavorful and colorful ingredients while still keeping things healthy and super delicious.
For this hearty salad, I used kale, red cabbage and other veggies to make a filling salad that’s perfect for a main course but doubles as a side dish too.
Apple chips add sweetness, while pecans add a nice texture and some crunch. I love adding feta cheese because of the saltiness, but that's optional if you don’t eat dairy. Another level of flavor comes from the truffle oil croutons, which add an earthiness to this already tasty dish. Top all that off with homemade apple cider vinaigrette, and you've got a salad you'll go back to all season long.
