This recipe came about one Christmas, however it doesn’t need to be Christmas to enjoy this salad.

Inspiration for this salad came from our decorative Christmas tree, the dark green kale representing the fir tree and all of the brightly coloured salad toppings represent the lights and baubles.

The beauty about this salad is that it is so versatile so you can easily swap in other fruit or vegetables so it is to your taste, using your favourite ingredients.

The tangy maple and mustard dressing really makes this salad sing and makes it that extra special during the festive season!

Serves two people on it’s own or four if having as a side salad accompanying a main meal.
