This Lemony Kale Salad with Apples, Cashews, and Blue Cheese is crunchy and light, tart and sweet. Massage the kale with the lemon-olive oil-garlic dressing to soften it. 

Ingredients: 

Juice from 1 lemon, about ¼ cup
½ cup olive oil
2 smashed cloves of garlic
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
6 to 8 cups chopped kale leaves
2 ounces finely crumbled blue cheese
½ cup cashews, chopped (I like raw unsalted cashews here, but use what you have and like)
½ apple, cut into matchsticks (I like Honeycrisp)

Recipe directions: 

In a small bowl, whisk the lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper together. Let the dressing sit on the counter for about 10 minutes.

Place the kale in a large bowl. Remove the garlic cloves from the dressing and discard. Pour the dressing on the kale and “massage” it in with your hands for a couple of minutes. Let the dressed kale rest for 30 minutes. 

Just before serving, toss the dressed kale with the blue cheese, cashews, and apples.
