Kale, Apple and Walnut Salad

No buffet is complete without a fresh, zesty salad to add crunch and colour to the spread.  Perfect with cold roast beef and ham.


  • large carrots, peeled and cut into 6cm batons
  • 1tsp cumin seeds
  • 2tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 50g pumpkin seeds
  • 50g walnuts
  • 350g prepared curly kale
  • 2 apples peeled, cored and cut into matchsticks
  • 1tbsp cider vinegar
  • 2tbsp extra virgin olive oil



Preheat the oven to 180°C/Fan 160°C/gas mark 4. Place the carrots in a bowl and toss with the cumin seeds and rapeseed oil. Spread out on a large roasting tray and roast for five minutes then add the seeds and walnuts and roast for a further 2–3 minutes until toasted and golden.

Add the kale to the roasting tray and toss well with the carrots and seeds and roast for a further eight minutes until the kale is crispy.

Remove from the heat and toss in the apple. Whisk together the cider vinegar and extra virgin olive oil and drizzle over the salad, tossing together well. Season with a pinch of sea salt and ground black pepper.


Help us maintain our standards of journalism

Readers across the region enjoy our news site but keeping our news up to date and authoritative, without charging readers to view the site is a challenge. Especially now with the Corona Virus measures affecting us all, as many clients have been severely affected and are naturally reducing their spend on advertisements. Given this lack of revenue stream we are calling on the generosity of our readers to help us fill that void and enable our journalists to continue delivering the news that you enjoy.

Unlike many other news sites, we don't have annoying pop ups or charge scandalous prices for events. We also produce printed magazines for each title and we make these freely available to read on line too, for your enjoyment. Often, people have asked why we don't make a charge for viewers to read these magazines and news stories but we feel that would adversely affect our readership/advertisers response rate. But with advertising revenues now severely affected we need your help. So, if you can support our news sites/magazines with either a small donation of even £1, or a subscription to our magazine, which costs just £27.55 per year, (inc p&P and mailed direct to your door) your generosity will help us weather the current storm and continue in our quest to deliver quality journalism.

We value your readership and your support, as this enables us to continue to provide our regular daily news updates. We've been established over 30 years, during which we've lost count of the numerous recessions and financial meltdowns, and we intend to weather the storms caused by Covid-19. So, every reader contribution, however big or small, is invaluable in helping us to get through this. Please click here to help support your favourite news site/magazine.
