Grilled Fruit and Vegetable Salad

Yield: Serves 4


1 red apple, cut into 8 wedges

1 red pear, cut into 8 wedges

6 stalks of kale

½ sweet potato, cut into 5 mm wedges

¼ cup (60 mL) honey

¼ cup (60 mL) apple cider vinegar

¼ cup (60 mL) cold pressed canola oil

1 green onion, chopped

1 clove garlic, thinly sliced (preferably with a mandolin)

½ bunch of herbs of choice (mint, dill, thyme, parsley)

½ cup pumpkin seeds, almonds or pecans

Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Turn the grill to a medium heat. Toss the fruit and vegetables in a bit of the oil, and add salt and pepper to taste
  2. Place the sweet potato on the grill first, giving it a 2-3 minute head start
  3. Add the apple, pear and kale, and char for about 5 minutes until starting to soften but still crunchy on the inside. When the kale begins to crisp, char and wilt, remove from the grill
  4. Once the sweet potato is soft but still has a slight bite, remove all the fruits and vegetables and set aside in a bowl to cool
  5. Whisk together the honey, apple cider vinegar, canola oil, green onion, garlic, herbs, and salt and pepper
  6. Pour the dressing over the fruits and vegetables, just enough to coat but not saturate. Sprinkle with your choice of nuts or seeds
