Combines Kale and Arugula with Apples or Pears in an Italian vinaigrette dressing. There are many ways to switch this one up by varying the greens or fruit used or the herbs in the dressing. Always a crowd pleaser.

  • 1⁄2 bunch arugula
  • 1 apple or ripe pear thinly sliced
  • 1 stalk celery chopped
  • 1⁄4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup pecans or walnuts whole or pieces


  • 2-3 tablespoons cold pressed olive
  • oil or flax oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1⁄4 cup sweet mirin
  • Fresh or dry minced garlic to taste
  • 2-3 tablespoons Nama Shoyu
  • 1 tablespoon dulse flakes
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon Pepper, black or other such as chipotle
  • 1⁄4 cup fresh or 1 tablespoon dried herbs of your choice

Place salad ingredients in mixing bowl. Whisk dressing ingredients together and pour over salad. Toss gently. Adjust amounts to taste.
