Kale Salad

Kale salads are all over the place these days. There are so many ways to make them, I'm looking forward to trying a few different recipes. Here are a few I've been looking at:

  • 101 Cookbooks has a classic recipe with pecorino and breadcrumbs
  • Not Eating Out In NY  adds honey mustard and pomegranate arils.
  • I don't know about the "tabouli" part but Steamy Kitchen's cauliflower tabouli with kale sounds delish.
  • This version in Saveur has an orange-soy sauce dressing, avocado and hemp seeds.

For my kale salad, I used dinosaur (lacinato) kale, the juice of one lemon, 2-3 tablespoons olive oil, a couple handfuls of chopped and toasted almonds, about 1 oz. crumbled feta cheese, and a bit of salt and pepper. It is really fun to massage the kale to get it all coated in lemon juice and olive oil!

I let the salad sit for about 20 minutes before serving it (alongside a simple pan-seared chicken breast), but the leftovers were even better the next day.

Anyone else have a favorite kale salad recipe?


  1. I like the one you made for Thanksgiving! ps) I love your blog! I wish you shared it sooner.
