Cherry and Kale Salad with Brie! Both fresh and dried cherries are used in this flavorful kale salad that's complete with fresh thyme, pistachios and a delicious white balsamic vinaigrette!



  • 8 cups torn Tuscan kale, or one 10-ounce bag
  • 1 cup pitted and halved bing cherries
  • ½ cup chopped dried cherries
  • ½ cup (2 ounces) diced brie
  • ¼ cup chopped pistachios
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon minced shallot
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • ¼ teaspoon minced fresh garlic, from 1 medium clove
  • ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper


  • Toss together kale, cherries, dried cherries, brie, pistachios and thyme. 
  • Whisk together oil, vinegar, shallot, Dijon, honey, garlic, salt, and pepper for the vinaigrette. 
  • Divide salad between serving dishes and drizzle with vinaigrette.


Make it vegan: leave brie cheese out of the salad and use pure maple syrup in place of the honey in the vinaigrette.
