Serves: 3
  • 3 to 4 oranges
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts
  • 4 cups kale, ribs removed, cut into ribbons
  1. Juice 2 to 3 oranges, until you have ⅓ cup juice. Peel and section the remaining oranges.
  2. Combine the ⅓ cup juice, maple syrup, vinegar, and garlic in a food processor. Process until smooth. Taste and add a little water if necessary. Season with salt and fresh ground black pepper.
  3. Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  4. Spread the walnuts in a single layer on a baking sheet lined in parchment paper. Roast for 5 to 10 minutes, toss the nuts occasionally to ensure even cooking. They are done when they appear a shade darker and smell toasty. Keep a close eye so they don't burn.
  5. Place the kale in a large. bowl. Add a small amount of the dressing and massage the dressing into the kale for about 2 minutes to soften it, being careful not to overdress.
  6. Add the remaining orange segments and toasted walnuts, and drizzle with a little more dressing if needed.
  7. *Serving Suggestion - Add dried tart cherries or a leftover grain like farro to amp up the protein. For a thicker dressing, add a tablespoon of olive oil.
