A truly delicious salad that's ready in minutes with the Thermomix. The salty umami from the toasted walnuts and prosciutto is countered with an explosion of sweetness from the apples and maple syrup. Kale is one of the most nutrient-dense foods you can find; low-calorie but packed with vitamins and antioxidants.
