120 calories/serving


2 1/2 cups kale, tough stems discarded 200 g
2 oranges 360 g
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 30 mL
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar 15 mL
1 tsp whole-grain mustard 5 g
1 shallots, finely chopped 40 g
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]


  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water then bring to a boil. Add the kale and cook until just tender, about 3 min. Drain the kale and let cool slightly. Squeeze out any excess liquid then cut into large pieces and put into a salad bowl.
  2. Using a sharp knife, remove the peel and pith from the oranges then cut out the segments. Add the segments to the salad bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, add the oil, vinegar, mustard, and chopped shallot. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Beat well, using a fork, until the vinaigrette is emulsified. Pour it over the salad and toss, then serve.

We like this salad but not as crazy about the mustard. Tend to just use a regular vinaigrette
