Holiday Kale, Cranberry, and Orange Salad

Holiday Kale, Cranberry, and Orange Salad

You may have seen this holiday inspired cranberry, kale, and orange salad recipe on my Instagram feed last week, but I wanted to share here as well because it is staple in our house this time of year. We serve it as a holiday side, an everyday meal, and before all of this covid madness, we were known for this at friends’ holiday potlucks. Best of all, it starts with a bagged salad as a base, which makes it easy as (health conscious) pie.  

Holiday Kale, Cranberry, and Orange Salad 
Serves: 3-4
1 bag Sweet Kale Salad Mix*
1-1/2 cups kale, chopped
2 mandarin oranges, peeled and segmented
½ cup dried cranberries
¼ cup pepitas
poppy seed dressing (optional)

(*Note: Use a mix with kale, cabbage, brussels sprouts, and radicchio. Sometimes dried cranberries and pepitas even come with the sweet kale salad kits.)

1. In a large salad bowl, combine salad mix, kale, oranges, and half of the dried cranberries and pepitas.
2. Top with remaining dried cranberries and pepitas. Drizzle on small amount of poppy seed dressing, or squeeze juice from oranges on top instead. Serve.

Simple, festive, and so freaking delicious. Happy holidays!
