Mixed Kale Salad with Cara Cara Orange Vinaigrette

Tossed with a sweet citrus dressing, this bright and fresh salad pairs beautifully with this week’s soup.

Ingredients:
8 cups mixed Lacinato and curly kale greens, removed from thick stems, washed and patted dry
1 cup slivered almonds
2 small Cara Cara oranges, juiced
Zest from both oranges
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
¾ cup olive oil
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper

Method:
1. In a small skillet, toast almonds until golden brown and fragrant. Set aside to cool.

2. In a blender, combine the orange zest, orange juice, balsamic vinegar, honey, garlic, salt, and pepper. Blend until smooth. With the blender running, add the olive oil in a steady stream until combined.

3. Working in batches, cut the kale into thin ribbons and place in a large bowl. Sprinkle with the almonds and toss with about half of the dressing. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper and vinaigrette, as desired.
