  • 3 cups baby kale
  • 1 large Honeycrisp apple sliced
  • ½ cup pomegranate arils
  • ½ cup pistachios


  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest
  • 1 ½ tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 ½ teaspoon dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Put all salad dressing ingredients into a jar and shake.
  • Add all salad ingredients to a medium sized bowl.
  • Dress salad right before serving. This salad stays well in the fridge for several days without getting soggy and apples don't brown because of acid in the oranges.


This salad holds up well for up to two days if it is not dressed.
Feel free to use any type of kale you want.
