  • 2 cups Granny Smith apples
  • 2 cups Gala or Braeburn apples
  • ¼ cup crumbled goat cheese
  • 4 cups baby kale
  • cups chopped walnuts
  • 2 tbsp dried cranberries
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper


  • First, prepare the salad dressing by combining the Dijon mustard, olive oil, lemon juice, honey, sea salt, and black pepper in a small bowl. Stir well with a whisk and set aside.
  • Next, add the chopped apples and goat cheese to a bowl. Then drizzle the dressing over the salad mixture, tossing gently to coat. Then add the walnuts and the dried cranberries to the apple mixture and stir together.
  • Place the baby kale into a serving bowl or individual bowls and top with apple mixture. Enjoy!



  • Because apples can turn brown quickly, I recommend chopping the apples and add the salad dressing soon after. Or you can squeeze some lemon juice to help prevent them from browning.
  • Eating this salad soon after preparing will help prevent the apples from becoming soggy.
