Kale, Apple & Parmesan Salad. YUM!

This salad is super simple and extra delicious!

FullSizeRender (8)

Ingredients:
Depending on how much salad you want to make, feel free to increase or decrease amount of ingredients.
1 bunch Lacianto Kale
1 apple (I use fuji)
1/8 cup of grated parmesan cheese (or however much cheese you want!)
1/2 lemon (zested)
1/8 cup extra virgin olive oil
Salt & Pepper

Start by de-ribbing (is that a word?  Remove the stem) the kale, and shredding the leaves.  Place in a large bowl.  Large dice the apple and add to the kale.  Toss in the parmesan.  In a separate small bowl add the olive oil, juice and zest from the lemon, and salt and pepper to taste.  Whisk for 30 seconds or so until it becomes a little thicker.  Pour over the salad and toss.  It’s that simple and so good!  Good for you too 🙂

A Fall Day in Apple Hill

First off, HAPPY THANKSGIVING!  I hope everyone is having a wonderful with loved ones and good food!  Thought I would share a fun fall post!

I’ve been wanting to go to Apple Hill for years, and this year, we went!  On our way home from a Tahoe getaway – we made a little pit stop.  Apple Hill is literally right off HWY 50 between Pollock Pines and Placerville – with lots of great stops within seconds of each other.

Not having a clue where to go, I did a quick yelp review – and was very pleased with my stops:

Bodhaine Ranch
YOU MUST STOP FOR PIE!  We got a slice of raspberry sour cream pie and it was insane… if you listen to anything I say, stop here for a slice o pie!  It was also a great stop to take some fall family photos.

Bill’s Apples and Felicia’s Dolls
To be honest, we just made a quick stop here to walk the grounds.  The flowers were glorious, and they handed out FREE spiral sliced apples.  I didn’t go into the Doll shop because, well, I don’t like dolls, but it was a cute brief stop.

Rainbow Orchards
GET AN APPLE CIDER DONUT!  Trust me… yes, again.  They are so delicious!  There’s also free samples of the apple cider, overflowing pumpkins and plenty of picnic tables.  Another photo shoot opportunity too 🙂

Enjoy your day in Apple Hill!

God id good friends.  God is good.
