  • 1 rutabaga
  • 2 small apples or 1 large apple
  • 1 cup kale leaves finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup walnuts chopped
  • 3 pitted dates chopped, optional

For the dressing:


  • Prepare the rutabaga and apples by slicing them into matchsticks. Combine them with the finely chopped kale in a large bowl. Add the walnuts and dates (optional).
  • In a separate bowl, combine the ingredients for the dressing and whisk until smooth. Pour over the salad ingredients and toss until coated. 
  • Enjoy chilled or at room temperature!


I did not add dates until after I tested the recipe, but loved how they tasted in the salad! I listed them as optional in the ingredients list because the salad tastes great without them too.
