OH Yes… apple season is in full swing and I’m loving it. I’m also loving my apple slicer which is such a time saver (and a finger saver too). I especially love adding fruit in salad any chance I get to sweeten it up naturally, to take it a step further, I’ll apparently pour maple syrup on anything these days as well and so we wind up with this salad! Roasting walnuts in maple syrup until it caramelizes is the best, you guys! I know it’s getting chillier out… and salads might not be as popular but there is always a side of soup possibility here… and furthermore I always love a good bowl of raw greens. Don’t forget to massage your kale with some olive oil for an even better taste, texture and free manicure.
Oh and, don’t forget to sprinkle some hemp seeds on top… <33333 hemp seeds!
What’s your go-to topping for salads? I love hearing new ideas!

Alison, thanks for this recipe! This kale, apple, maple, walnut salad sounds so good! I love this combination of greens with nuts and fruits, it sounds like the best thing for all year round.
The perfect crisp salad for apple season. The pecan nuts give it a lovely crunch!
What a light and refreshing salad. I’m looking forward to making this tomorrow!

Walnuts and Apples are my most favorite thing to put in a salad. Reminds me of my Grandma! Great recipe!
I def love topping with hemp, but also nutritional yeast — prob my fave topping <3 And maple goes on everything here too. I love your salad, I think it’s the perfect transition from summer to fall with those cozy walnuts and apples in there.
OOH – I don’t normally top salads with nutritional yeast, but I will try it now! <3 thanks for the tip, Audrey!
I love salads year round too, and especially Kale and Chard in winter when local leafy greens are done. Delicious recipe and your dressing is fabulous! My go to topping for salad, are just like yours, nuts and hemp hearts! Thank you for this, Alison! Delicious!
Yum! Great minds think alike 🙂
