Massaged Collard-Apple Salad


I love Collards! I am starting to add small amounts of massaged greens back into my diet with decent results as long as I don’t over do it! I also love apples, and have really missed being able to eat them. This salad serves 6 and will keep in the fridge for several days. You can also use it in place of lettuce in a sandwich or wrap (BBQ Tofu and Hummus come to mind!)

  • 8 cups raw collards, chiffonade cut
  • 1 cup diced carrots
  • 2 tbsp. red onion, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, pressed
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 3 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 medium gala apples, chopped, tossed with 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • ½ cup golden raisins
  • ¼ cup toasted sesame seeds
  • 3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp freshly grated ginger
  • 1 tbsp golden flax meal
  • Pinch nutmeg
  • Pinch cardamom
  • ¼ tsp. white pepper
  • 1 tbsp. nutritional yeast
  • Soy sauce to taste


  1. Chop collards, then massage with the carrot, onion, garlic, salt and 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar for several minutes.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and toss to combine.
  3. Let the salad sit for 15 minutes, taste and season with soy sauce if necessary

This is a great holiday salad and can be made ahead of time!
