The Lemon Fall Harvest Salad reminds us why we love a good bite of fresh salad in our kitchen. 

Just add a splash of our Il Fusti Lemon Olive Oil for that tang and zestiness mixed with our favorite fall produce. Make sure to blend well and enjoy!


For The Dressing:

¼ cup Il Fusti Lemon Olive Oil

  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 small shallot chopped
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup agave or honey would also work
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

For The Salad:

  • 1 large bunch kale washed, stemmed and shredded (6 cups)
  • 1 apple sliced thinly

1 cup dried California figs cut into small pieces

  • ½ cup pomegranate arils
  • 1 cup pecans lightly toasted
  • ½ cup goat feta, or blue cheese, crumbled


To make the dressing: Place all dressing ingredients in a jar, put the lid on, and give it a vigorous shake. Set it aside.

  1. To make the salad: Drizzle the bottom of a large salad bowl with half of the dressing. Add in the kale and give it a toss.* Make sure that all the kale leaves are coated with the dressing. 
  2. Add in the sliced apple, figs, pomegranate arils, and pecans. Drizzle it with the rest of the dressing and give it a gentle toss.
  3. Top it off with the cheese and serve immediately.
