    a lovely fall and winter kale salad laced with bacon, bleu cheese and tossed in a spicy mustard vinaigrette.

    Ingredients

    • 1 large bunch of kale, trimmed off the stalks and chopped (I used red kale but any type of kale will work)
    • 1 large apple, thinly sliced
    • 4-6 ounces of bacon, cooked and chopped
    • 4 ounces of bleu cheese, crumbled
    • ¼ cup sunflower seeds for garnish (optional)
    • ¾ cup extra virgin olive oil
    • ¼ cup organic apple cider vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon honey
    • 1 tablespoon stone ground mustard (or more to taste)
    • Salt and pepper to taste

    Directions

    1. Whisk together the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, honey and mustard.
    2. Most of the time I put it all into a mason jar with a pinch of salt and pepper and then close it with a lid and shake until all the ingredients are nicely combined.
    3. But you can whisk the ingredients together as well and then season to taste with salt and pepper.
    4. In a large bowl, toss some of the dressing with the kale until all the kale leaves are nicely coated.
    5. Transfer the dressed kale to a platter or salad bowl and then top with apples, bacon and bleu cheese.
    6. Sprinkle with sunflower seeds if desired.
