  • 16oz kale, stems removed
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup candied walnuts
  • 1 naval orange, peeled, cut in half, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

  • 2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • Step 1

    Install the chopping blade in the XL Precision Processor® Bowl. Working in batches, place 1/3 of the kale in the bowl. Install the lid, then select CHOP. When the program has completed, run the CHOP program again. Place chopped kale into a large mixing bowl and repeat this step with the remaining batches of kale.

  • Step 2

    Wipe the bowl clean and reinstall the chopping blade. Add all dressing ingredients to the bowl in the order listed and install the lid. Select PUREE.

  • Step 3

    To assemble the salad, massage the kale with half of the prepared dressing. Then top with dried cranberries, candied walnuts, orange slices, carrots, and Parmesan cheese. Drizzle with remaining dressing and serve.
