Kale & Apple Salad with Warm Bacon Vinaigrette

There’s something about a crisp salad filled with dark greens, the snap of apples, the crunch of pecans, and the flavor of a warm bacon vinaigrette.

It’s wrong. But it’s oh, so good. That’s where this Kale & Apple Salad with Warm Bacon Vinaigrette fits in.


- bacon - white wine vinegar - pure maple syrup - freshly ground black pepper - diced apples - red leaf lettuce - kale - shaved cheese - raisins - pecans

Cook the bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat until crispy. Lay on a paper towel to drain. Reserve ¼ cup of the bacon fat.

In a bowl, whisk the white wine vinegar and the maple syrup. Stir in the bacon fat.

Toss the apples, lettuce, and kale together. Toss with the bacon vinaigrette to coat (don’t be too heavy, or the greens will wilt).

Season with pepper and sprinkle with cheese, craisins, and pecans. Serve and enjoy!
