  • ½ cup organic walnut halves or pieces

  • 1 large bunch organic lacinato or dinosaur kale

  • 2 Tbs. orange juice (squeezed from ½ the orange)

  • 1½ Tbs. lemon juice

  • Unrefined sea salt and pepper to taste

Preparation

Preheat oven to 325°F. Arrange walnuts on baking sheet and toast until fragrant and crisp, about 10 minutes.

Zest orange. Place orange zest, olive oil, orange juice, lemon juice, salt, and pepper into cup or small jar, and mix. Add cranberries and toasted walnuts to kale, pour over dressing, and toss to coat thoroughly. Let sit on countertop at least one hour.
