One of my favourite Christmas side dishes just got a make over for 2019. This Crispy Kale Salad with Cranberries and Chestnuts has been updated to include buttery, sweet chestnuts instead of flaked almonds and plump, juicy, fresh cranberries instead of dried. The cranberries are roasted in freshly squeezed orange juice and maple (or honey if you’re not vegan) to complement their natural tartness.
What makes this Crispy Kale Salad with Cranberries and Chestnuts special?
Marinated in a dressing of clementine and ginger, this Crispy Kale Salad with Cranberries and Chestnuts just oozes festive flavour. It’s absolutely one of my favourite kale recipes and one to be rolling out well after the Christmas season’s over. If you can’t find fresh cranberries post Christmas, feel free to use dried, or for a more savoury flavour, some avocado or nut cheese works well too in this vegan kale salad.
Did you know just one cup of kale packs in 10% of the RDA of omega3 fatty acids, which help fight against arthritis, asthma and autoimmune disorders? Like we needed another excuse to get our greens on!
Have a happy and healthy Christmas everyone, Jo x
