With crunchy bitter greens, this kale brussels sprout and pear salad has everything from salty blue cheese to almonds to sherry vinaigrette. It is a great fall / winter salad.


For salad

4 cups chopped Lacinato kale

1 pound brussels sprouts, shaved thinly with a mandolin or a food processor fitted with the slicing disc

2 scallions, thinly sliced

2 red pears, cored and diced

1/4 cup roughly chopped almonds

1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese

1 tablespoon minced chives

For vinaigrette

1 garlic clove, minced

2 tablespoons sherry vinegar

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 cup olive oil


In a large bowl, combine the kale, brussels sprouts, scallions, pears, almonds, blue cheese and chives.

For the vinaigrette, combine the garlic, sherry vinegar, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Whisk in the olive oil until fully combined. Drizzle the vinaigrette into the salad, tossing to combine.
