  • Ingredients:
  • 2 cups chopped kale
  • 3-4 florets broccoli, chopped

  • 1⁄4 cup roasted sunflower seeds

Creamy Poppy Seed Dressing:
  • 1 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 1⁄2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp. poppy seeds

  1. Make poppy seed dressing: Combine all ingredients in a small bowl or jar. Whisk or shake vigorously until combined and creamy. Refrigerate if not using right away.
  2. For the salad: Prepare greens. For the kale, remove leaves from stem. Chop kale leaves in to bite-sized pieces and scatter on a cutting board. Massage the kale for a minute or so, until it softens and darkens. Add kale to large bowl. For the broccoli, remove several florets and finely chop both the flower ends and the stalk. Add to the bowl. Add the dried cranberries and roasted sunflower seeds to the bowl. Dice apple and add to the bowl. Drizzle some of the salad dressing over the salad and toss. Add more dressing as needed, until salad is moistened with dressing to your liking. Sprinkle a pinch of salt and pepper.
