Hazelnut & Date Kale Salad inspired by EVEN Hotels’ Cork & Kale menu

On a recent stay at EVEN Hotels in Norwalk, Connecticut, I was able to sample lots of items from their Cork & Kale menu and one that really jumped out was the Signature Kale Salad. With its lacinato kale, medjool dates, radish slivers, toasted hazelnuts, and pecorino cheese – the salad was delish! I immediately had to recreate it at home for lunch and made a few tweaks and my own dressing. Here’s the recipe:

  • 2 bunches organic kale, chopped
  • 10 dates, chopped
  • 2 handfuls of hazelnuts
  • 5 radishes, sliced thin
  • 2 cups of portobello mushrooms, chopped
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced

Mix ingredients together

For Dressing:

  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons pear-infused balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • a small dash of pure maple syrup
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • a dash of garlic powder

Mix well and drizzle over the salad.
