For our potluck recipe, we created a fresh new salad that is sure to be the hit of your next gathering.

This kale and cabbage salad is an easy salad to make and keeps well in the fridge if you want to make it in advance and take it to a potluck or any get together. It has some almonds, apple and orange slices in it for a little crunch and fruity flavor.

We love this salad because the chopped kale combined with the fruit give it a unique texture and flavor. The almonds are just a crunchy added bonus.

  • It really looks and sounds wonderful! I still have a slice of (red) cabbage in my fridge, which needs to be eaten asap, so I could actually make this. The kale is frozen, I hope that would not matter so much. 🙂

  • I love the autumn flavors in this salad! I might be using this dressing recipe for a salad I am bringing to a “live” potluck on Monday! Thanks for sharing 🙂
