Kale Salad

A friend of mine raved about this kale salad recipe, and I can now tell you firsthand that it’s delish! I’d never eaten kale before–I who used to grow most of her own food!–and I was pleasantly surprised at how tasty it is.

Also known as borecole, kale is a Brassica, similar to cabbage, and very nutritious. In fact, kale is said to be the “queen of greens,” one of the most nutritious vegetables in the world. It’s high in beta carotone, Vitamin C, calcium and loads of other vitamins and minerals, as well as a cancer-fighting chemical called sulforaphane. You can read more about the nutritional value and health benefits of kale on WHFood.org (WHFoods = the World’s Healthiest Foods).

So this kale salad is not only tasty but very healthy with much more going for it than lettuce.

Kale Salad Recipe

Here’s what you’ll need:

4 cups of chopped kale
1/4 cup of toasted almond slices
1/4 cup of dried cranberries
1/4 cup of parmesan cheese
1/4 cup of olive oil
1 Tbsp. maple syrup
1 clove of chopped garlic
Juice of 2 lemons
Salt and pepper

Mix all of these ingredients up and, oila! You’ve got kale salad. And it’s even better if you let it sit to marinate in the refrigerator overnight.

  1. I just discovered how delicious kale is as a cooked green, but I haven’t eaten it raw yet. I’d been thinking about using it in green smoothies, but haven’t followed through on that yet, either. However, this does sound like it would be quite tasty, so I am looking forward to trying it soon. (I enjoyed your quinoa squidoo lens, too, and want to try that recipe as well.)
