Baby Kale Salad with Golden Raisins, Pine Nuts and Gouda

Prep Time: 15m | Total Time: 15m | Serves

While mature kales and chards are rarely served raw, the tender baby leaves of Earthbound Farm Organic Kale (one of our Deep Greens Blends) are perfect for salads, flavorful with a hint of earthiness.

Tossed with a slightly sweet golden balsamic vinaigrette and paired with pine nuts, golden raisins and shavings of intensely flavorful aged Gouda, this is a salad to remember.

Our organic Power greens work beautifully in this salad, too. In fact, you may have a hard time deciding which combination of super-flavorful — and super-nutritious — baby leaves are really your favorite! 


2 tablespoons golden balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons champagne or white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon mild honey (such as tupelo)
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 ounces Earthbound Farm Organic Kale
1/4 cup golden raisins
3 tablespoons pine nuts (toasted)
  Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  Aged Gouda or Parmigiano Reggiano (shaved)


Combine the vinegar, oil, honey and salt in a small glass jar, seal tightly, and shake vigorously to combine. Set the dressing aside at room temperature, or refrigerate for up to 2 weeks (be sure to return it to room temperature before using).

Place the kale in a large salad bowl. Just before serving, add the dressing, tossing to coat the leaves. Add the raisins and pine nuts, and toss again. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Transfer the salad to individual plates or serve in the bowl, garnished with shavings of cheese.
