Kale Apple Salad Recipe
Because it needs to chill before serving, this recipe is best made the night before, which means less prep at party time. I boiled my potatoes while I was making dinner, let them cool while we ate and then after dishes I put the salad together. It sat in the fridge overnight, and was ready for lunch the next day. 

Kale Apple Salad Recipe 


  • 3/4 cup MIRACLE WHIP Dressing
  • 1 Tbsp. GREY POUPON Dijon Mustard
  • 2 tsp. cider vinegar
  • 2 lb. new red potatoes, cut in quarters, cooked & cooled
  • 4 cups coarsely chopped kale
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion*
  • 2 apples, cored and diced

*Note, I left the red onion out of my salad because of my family’s personal tastes.

4 Tips for cooking potatoes

  • Make sure your potatoes are all roughly the same size so they cook evenly.
  • Start with cool water and bring your potatoes to a boil. This helps make sure the potatoes cook all the way through and don’t get must on the outside while the middle is still hard.
  • Leave the pot uncovered to cook.
  • check potatoes for doneness with a fork. They are done when you encounter no resistance all the way through the center.

I’ve never eaten Kale before, and I was surprised by how mild it is. For some reason I was expecting something really strong. Since my grocery store carries Kale in a large – LARGE – bag, it looks like I will be coming up with some new Kale recipes too!
