Cherries add a touch of sweetness to thinly sliced kale quickly wilted in apple juice. It's an unexpected pairing but the flavors blend well to make a filling vegetarian side dish.
- 2 shallots thinly sliced
- 1/2 cup apple juice divided
- 1 cup fresh cherries pitted and quartered
- 1 large bunch kale (about 3/4 pound) stems and tough ribs removed, leaves thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup toasted chopped walnuts
Heat a large high-sided skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallots and cook until they just start to stick to the pan, about 3 minutes, stirring frequently. Add 1/4 cup apple juice and cook 2 minutes longer. Stir in cherries, remaining apple juice and kale. Cover and reduce heat to medium. Cook 3 to 4 minutes or just until kale is wilted. Remove from heat and stir in walnuts.
