A smoky and sweet salad that has the perfect freshness for pairing with grilled or barbecued dishes.

  • 2 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp. Smoked Spanish Sweet Paprika
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 peaches or red apples, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced


Combine kale, vinegar, maple syrup, paprika, and salt. "Massage" the kale with your hands for 30 seconds to help season the kale and neutralize any bitterness. Toss in sliced fruit and onion. Let salad sit for 30 min. to allow flavors to meld before serving.

4 stars 8/8/17 domjoer3
I hesitate with the number of stars I give this recipe because I did not put in as much smoked paprika as is called for. Instead, I halved the amount because I suspected it would be too much. I am glad I followed my intuition. I love this combination of ingredients. This salad is so tasty. The dressing is delicious without the paprika, too. This is a keeper and I will make it again. I have a question about the double listing of onion. I assume it was accidental and so I only used 1/2 cup of red onion.
Test Kitchen Response: Hello Erin, thanks for reviewing! We're glad you enjoyed the salad and we've fixed the double listing of onion. Thanks for spotting that!
