Baby Kale Salad with Raisins, Pine Nuts and Gouda
Active Time: 15 minutes • Total Time: 0 minutes
Yields: 4 Servings
- 2 tablespoons golden balsamic vinegar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons champagne or white wine vinegar
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon mild honey
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 5 ounces Earthbound Farm Organic Baby Kale
- 1/4 cup raisins
- 3 tablespoons pine nuts
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Aged Gouda or Parmigiano Reggiano
The tender baby leaves of Earthbound Farm Organic Baby Kale are perfect for salads, flavorful with a hint of earthiness.
Tossed with a slightly sweet golden balsamic vinaigrette and paired with pine nuts, raisins and shavings of intensely flavorful aged Gouda, this is a salad to remember.
Our organic Power Greens or Mighty Spinach work beautifully in this salad, too. In fact, you may have a hard time deciding which combination of super-flavorful — and super-nutritious — baby leaves are really your favorite!
Combine the vinegar, oil, honey and salt in a small glass jar, seal tightly, and shake vigorously to combine. Set the dressing aside at room temperature, or refrigerate for up to 2 weeks (be sure to return it to room temperature before using).
Place the greens in a large salad bowl. Just before serving, add the dressing, tossing to coat the leaves. Add the raisins and pine nuts, and toss again. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Transfer the salad to individual plates or serve in the bowl, garnished with shavings of cheese.
Note: Some people prefer the look of light-colored golden raisins to the dark color of organic Thompson or Red Flame raisins; you can use any variety of raisins interchangeably here.
