Green kale Waldorf salad

Serves 4 to 6

INGREDIENTS:

Cashew Dressing

1 cup cashew nuts
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup water
4 tablespoons lemon juice or to taste
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
pinch of salt

Salad

1/2 cup walnuts (or sunflower seeds)
3/4 pound or 1 bunch curly green kale
2 apples, sweet and firm (or 1 apple and 1 pear)
2 oranges
1/2 cup apricots, figs, dates, or raisins, chopped
1 cup red grapes

DIRECTIONS

Leave the walnuts raw or toast them in the oven at 250 degrees F for 8 to 10 minutes. Chop into rough pieces.

Rinse the kale thoroughly to remove any dirt. Remove the core and cut into very fine strips. Rinse the apples and cut each one into 4 wedges. Remove the seeds and cut into small diagonal slices. Peel the oranges with a knife and slice into wedges.

Mix all ingredients together. Before serving, mix in the dressing with the salad.
