Warm Bacon and Kale Salad with Maple Bacon Vinaigrette
10-12 Stalks of Kale
5-7 Radish, sliced thin
4 slices Bacon, diced
6-8 Sundried Tomatoes, chopped
½ Apple, cored and diced
2 Tbsp White Balsamic Vinegar
¼ cup Almonds, chopped
Prepare the kale by removing the center stems and dicing the leaves finely. Add the radishes. Set aside.
In a medium size skillet cook the bacon until crispy. Spoon the grease out of the pan.
To the bacon, add the olive oil. Once hot, add the sun dried tomatoes and apples. Sauté for 2-3 minutes until warm.
Add the vinegar and cook for another 2 minutes to reduce a bit.
Pour the warm dressing over the kale and toss to coat. Garnish with chopped almonds.
Enjoy immediately or let it rest at room temperature for 30-60 minutes for the flavors to marinate.
