Apple Cider Poutine Salad

Classic Canadian comfort gets a fresh, seasonal upgrade from sautéed kale and a tangy apple cider sauce that straddles the line between gravy and vinaigrette. Think of the French fries as croutons.

Apple Cider Poutine Salad


  • 1/2 (26 - 32 oz.) bag frozen French fries
  • 10 oz. chopped fresh kale, washed
  • 5 tbsp. Schnucks unsalted butter, divided
  • 1 large shallot, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 tsp. chopped fresh sage
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 3 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup Schnucks low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup apple cider or juice
  • 3 tbsp. apple cider vinegar, divided
  • 1 tbsp. Schnucks olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups cheese curds
  • 1 cups shredded Schnucks rotisserie chicken, warmed


  1. Prepare French fries according to package directions. Keep warm.
  2. In a small saucepan melt 4 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add shallot, sage and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes or until shallots are just crisp-tender. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
  3. Sprinkle shallots with flour and cook, stirring frequently, 1–2 minutes more. Gradually whisk in broth, apple cider and 2 tablespoons vinegar. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring often, about 5 minutes or until thickened.
  4. Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet melt remaining butter over medium heat. Add kale, cover and cook 1 minute. Uncover. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 minute more or until just wilted. Toss with remaining vinegar. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
  5. Transfer kale to a serving bowl. Top with French fries, cheese curds and rotisserie chicken. Drizzle with cider gravy and serve immediately.
