Kale & Radicchio Salad with Lemon Caper Vinaigrette

IMG_5135This salad was inspired by one I had recently at Pure Food & Wine. I rejiggered all of the ingredients into my own version of the salad and dressing. The same flavors but easy to make at home!

Lemon Caper Vinaigrette (makes about 2 cups)
1 cup cashews
1 cup filtered water
The juice of 2 lemons, about 1/4 cup
2 tablespoon capers, plus a little brine
1 tablespoon Dijon or stoneground mustard
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast

Place all ingredients into the Vitamix or blender and let it rip until smooth. Store in a glass container in the refrigerator.

Kale
Radicchio
Red grapes
Golden raisins
Pine nuts
Pumpkin seeds

Slice the kale and radicchio into ribbons and the grapes in half and place into a bowl. Add the raisins, pine nuts and pumpkins. Toss with the dressing. Enjoy!
