Shaved Honeycrisp Apple and Kale Salad

For such a simple, fast recipe, this salad--from chef-partner Steven Redzikowski of Oak at Fourteenth, in Boulder, CO--packs a surprising amount of complexity and flavor. Ichimi togarashi, a Japanese ground red pepper, really makes it pop.

  • Yield: Serves 4


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Zest and juice of 1 medium lemon
  • 2 cups thinly sliced kale
  • 1/4 cup finely shredded parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped candied almonds
  • 1 Honeycrisp apple
  • About 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • About 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • Ichimi togarashi*


1. Whisk together oil, zest, and juice in a medium bowl. Add kale, cheese, and almonds, then toss to coat.

2. Cut sides off apple into 4 pieces, leaving the core. Slice the apple pieces thinly with a mandoline or a knife. Add to salad and toss to coat. Season with salt, pepper, and ichimi togarashi.
