Chopped Kale Salad
Kale salads are a favorite of mine no matter the season. They’re versatile, taste better the longer they sit, and are hearty enough to be a satisfying meal.
This chopped kale salad is tossed in a creamy sesame tahini dressing, and topped with crunchy veggies like cabbage, carrots and cucumbers. The apple slices and dried cranberries add the perfect sweetness, and the shaved almonds add a delicious crunch.
Kale is the superior green base to use for any salad in my opinion. It stays crisp when marinated, and works well with a variety of different dressings and flavors.
This salad would make for the perfect meal prep salad to go with some baked salmon, chicken, or chickpeas for added protein.
What to add to your kale salad
I threw together this recipe based off of what I had in my fridge, so you can easily customize it depending on what you have around!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Kale- for this recipe I love using tuscan kale
- Crunchy vegetables- I used cucumbers, carrots and cabbage. Other ideas are bell peppers, red onion, or sugar snap peas
- Apples and dried cranberries for a little sweetness
- Shaved almonds for an added crunch
- Optional: parmesan or feta cheese to top
The homemade tahini dressing brings all of the flavors together and adds the perfect balance of fat to the salad.
Make this chopped kale salad the next time you need an easy way to pack in some vegetables to your week! It’s fresh and vibrant, and an easy way to clean out your fridge.
