Kale Salad with Peanut Vinaigrette

Happy Friday!

There is a new Hillstone concept in Aspen, The White House Tavern, which I am loving!  The first time we went I ordered the kale salad and immediately knew this was a recipe I needed to figure out how to make at home.  Our waiter provided me with a list of the majority of the ingredients, so it was pretty simple to piece together the recipe.  This is without a doubt the best kale salad I have ever had!  I really hope you enjoy it as much as I do!





Peanut Vinaigrette

  • 4 tbsps. peanuts
  • 2 tbsps. olive oil
  • 2 tbsps. sesame oil
  • 4 tbsps. lemon juice
  • 2 tbsps. rice wine vinegar
  • Salt + pepper to taste


  • 4 cups Tuscan kale, chopped
  • 1 cup green cabbage, finely sliced
  • ¼ cup mint, diced
  • ¼ cup cilantro, diced
  • 4 tbsps. peanuts, chopped


  • In a blender, puree peanuts, olive oil, sesame oil, vinegar, lemon juice, salt + pepper until smooth
  • Prepare kale, cabbage, mint and cilantro
  • Toss well with ½ the dressing, add more dressing if needed, making sure salad is very well coated (you will probably have extra dressing).  Add peanuts and toss once more
