Every Tuesday, we scan Food52′s delectable menu of recipes for the healthiest picks they’ve got—bringing you seasonal, scrumptious fare that’s also really good for you.

Food 52This week, we’re tossing a Kale Salad with Apples and Hazelnuts, a light meal to to slot in between fatty holiday feasts, and one of the top recipes featured in the site’s brand-new Holiday Recipe & Survival Guide iPad app. For $9.99 you’ll get 75 recipes, 100 minutes of video, and their imminently practical advice on holiday entertaining.

You already know, of course, that we love us some nutrient-packed kale. And hazelnuts, it turns out, are a great source of quercetin, a trendy phytochemical that is known for its anti-inflammatory powers, perfect for that time of year when everything is inflamed.

Serves 4

5 cups curly kale and mustard green leaves, torn into small pieces
2 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced on the bias
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon brown rice vinegar
Sea salt and coarsely ground black pepper
1 tart apple
1/4 cup hazelnuts, chopped and toasted
1/4 cup pecorino romano or parmesan, shaved with a vegetable peeler

1. In a large bowl, combine the kale, mustard greens, scallions, olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Mix with your hands to really blend the dressing and rub it into the greens. Let the salad sit while you prepare the rest.

2. Core the apple. I like to do this with a melon baller. Thinly — like, super thinly — slice the two halves from stem to flower end. If you have a mandoline, that’s the easiest way to go. Add the apples to the salad and gently fold together so they don’t break in half. Taste and adjust seasonings.

3. Spread the salad on a platter. Sprinkle with the hazelnuts and cheese shavings.
