  • Honey Crisp apples, 2 each, thinly sliced in half moons
  • Jumbo Sweet Potato, 3 medium dice, roasted
  • Avocado, 2, medium dice
  • Quinoa, 1.5 cups (cooked)
  • Kale, 2 heads, chopped
  • Walnuts, roasted
  • EVOO, ¼ cup
  • Salt, pinch
  • For the Dressing:
  • Honey, Apple Vinaigrette, 1 qt.
  • Honey, 4 tbsp.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar, ¼ cup
  • Olive Oil, 1 cup
  • Dijon Mustard, 1 tbsp
  • Crushed Black Peppercorns, 1 pinch
  • Salt to taste
  • For the Roasted Walnuts:

  • Cooking Directions

    For the Dressing:

    In a mixing bowl, add your honey, dijon and apple cider vinegar. With a whisk lightly whisk all three of ingredients together. Once they have been whisked together, you will start to whisk your olive oil into the bowl, making sure that you are pouring the olive oil in slowly with a steady stream. Once it has all come together you will season your vinaigrette and gently whisk the salt and pepper in.

    For the Roasted Walnuts:

    Preheat your oven to 300F. While your oven is preheating, you will season your walnuts with salt and olive oil. Lay out your walnuts on a sheet tray with some parchment paper. Roast at 300F for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Let them cool down and then crush the walnuts.

    To plate:

    Combine kale, cooked quinoa, apple slices, avocado dices, roasted sweet potato and 2 tbsp. of honey apple cider vinaigrette and lightly toss. Top with toasted walnuts.
