This Kale, Apple & Raisin Salad is a very healthy and delicious salad for all you Kale haters out there!!! If you attended my Mindful Eating workshop at the York Pagan Pride Day this past weekend, you got to sample the amazing salad. It is inspired by a friend’s recipe she shared with me over a year ago. It is awesome with grilled chicken, goat cheese or grilled pork. The dressing also makes a killer marinade for beef, pork, and chicken.
Kale, Apple & Raisin Salad
- 4 cup packed finely chopped raw kale Chopped
- 1 large Gala chopped cut into bite-size pieces
- 1 cup carrot Juillene cut
- 1/2 cup walnuts Chopped
- 1/4 cup raisins
- 2 clove garlic finely minced or pressed
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon Dijon Mustard
- 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup olive oil
Add all the ingredients for the dressing up to the oil into a medium bowl. Slowly whisk in the oil until the dressing becomes lighter in color and thickens. Set aside.
Toss all the ingredients together in a large bowl. Drizzle with dressing and toss to coat. Serve immediately.

I love food and everything that goes with it. I have spent more than 35 years in the kitchen, enjoying every minute of it. Okay… well, enjoying nearly every minute of it.
In addition, I have disbursed nearly as many years studying Wicca, Witchcraft, and Paganism. Combining these two interests has created a Magickal path where food, spirituality play brilliantly together.
My love of whole healthy foods, and unique recipes has also lead me to help run a local teen cooking program, where I teach kids valuable life skills in the kitchen. In addition, I teach different cooking classes for adults on subjects of making the time spent in the kitchen more enjoyable and efficient, recipe creation, and how to make cooking a part of your Magickal and spiritual practice.
From this, The Magick Kitchen was born. My journey with you is about developing a spiritual experience with food, far beyond the dull habit of consumption. We have a marvelous opportunity here to take a most basic-mundane task and make it Magickal!
