  • 2 cups packed chopped Tuscan lacinato kale leaves, tough ribes removed
  • 2 cups red cabbage thinly sliced
  • 2 cups Brussels sprouts thinly sliced
  • 1 cup raw fennel thinly sliced
  • 1 medium-large Granny Smith apple cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1.2 cup dried tart cherries chopped
  • 3 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp. plus 1 tsp. honey or maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  1. In a large bowl, combine the kale, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, fennel, apple and dried cherries.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lime juice, honey, vinegar, mustard and salt until blended. Taste and adjust as necessary. For more acidity, add a little more lime juice or to mellow the flavors a bit, add a little more honey.
  3. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and toss to combine. For best flavor, let the salad marinate for 15 to 20 minutes before serving. This slaw keeps well, chilled fro 2 to 3 days.
