This fall kale salad recipe is loaded with crispy apples, pears, and crispy walnuts. The simple honey and lemon dressing covers every bite of this kale salad and makes it completely fresh, healthy, and delicious! And it doesn't hurt that kale is a superfood!

We love that this fall kale salad is a prepared salad. Most green leafy salads should be eaten shortly after they are made, but this improves over time! I recommend letting the kale marinate in the dressing for 4 hours or overnight. We have enjoyed this salad after 2 hours, but the leaves are softer and just after marinating 4 hours.

P.S. The lemon dressing preserves the fruit, so the leftovers from this kale salad are still very tasty the next day, perfect for a work or school lunch! 🙂

How to make fall kale salad:

1. Combine all dressing ingredients and stir until honey dissolves. Tip: If your honey doesn't dissolve easily, you can place the bottom of your dressing bowl in a bowl of hot water to warm it up a bit, which should be the trick!

2. Rinse and peel the kale leaves (hold the stem with one hand and remove the leaves with the other). Chop into small pieces. I rinse the chopped leaves a second time to make sure there is no dust hidden in the curled leaves and then dry them in a salad spinner.

3. Place the kale in a salad bowl, top with 1 cup of dried cranberries and drizzle the top with dressing. Use your hands or a large spoon to stir well. Cover and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.
