  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 8 ounces kale, washed and torn into bite-sized pieces

  • 1/3 cup toasted walnuts
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoon finely chopped shallots
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
