Best Kale Salad Recipe that will Blow Your Mind!

From what I understand, most people either really love kale, or really dislike it. Aside from the amazing benefits kale has, I love the versatility of it because it really is capable of doing some amazing things, not just for your body, but for your taste buds too!

I’m going to be bold and tell you that this kale recipe is going to blow. your.mind! It came to me like an epiphany and I knew it was going to be epic, so I went straight to work! If you don’t believe me, make it and then tell me it didn’t knock your socks off! I won’t sit here and tell you how much I love kale, because I think that’s pretty obvious, but what I will tell you is that if you’re on the fence of how you feel about it and really are interested in adding it to your diet for some healthy green power to your body, you’ve come to the right place!

I will also tell you that if you’ve ever felt choked from eating kale, then you’re missing the single most important step you need to eliminate that from ever happening again. The secret that most people won’t tell you is to slice it thin. Slice that kale as thin as you can, and don’t use that thick stem that starts to develop halfway past the kale. If you can do that, than you are one step closer to understanding how delicious kale can be. I made a nice large bowl for myself and practically inhaled it, and I am already thinking about when I can make this salad again! If you’ve tried my kale salad recipe from my book Ripsy’s Recipes, you will absolutely love this recipe. Please give your body some love and make this salad, and I would genuinely love to hear your feedback on it. Feel free to double or triple this recipe. I used very fresh kale for this recipe and mixed the two types of kale, common curly kale, and lacinato also known as tuscan kale. Quality of freshness matters, so try your very best to make this the first day your purchase your kale. Okay enough chit chat, let’s get started!

Prep time: 5 minutes
Serves: 1Total time: 5 minutes
2 cups finely chopped kale (half curly and half lacinato kale)
1 tbsp pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
1 tbsp crumbled feta (sheep’s milk) + 1/2 tbsp crumbled blue cheese

1 tsp grated ginger (I used this to grate it)
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp dijon mustard
1/2 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 tsp sea salt (my absolute favorite)
1. Thoroughly wash kale and pat dry. Finely chop half lacinato kale and half curly kale and place in a large bowl.
2. In a small bowl, add the grated ginger, olive oil, dijon mustard, sea salt, and lemon juice and stir.
3. Pour the dressing over the kale and massage the kale with hands for a few seconds.

Hello and welcome to my site! My name is Rips and I am thrilled to share my passion with you! I am just a girl who loves to bake and cook. It’s one of my favorite things to do and is rewarding in so many ways! It teaches me to be present and helps me relieve stress. I grew up watching both my parents cook the most delicious food you could possibly imagine! Cooking healthy food for each other was something we did for the ones we cared about. Shortly after, I picked up on that habit. I come from a Mediterranean background and I bring that to a lot of my recipes with lots of modern adaptations. I have been baking and cooking for over 15 years and truly find the most joy in it! I also recently wrote and self published my first recipe book called Ripsy's Recipe's on Amazon (I will link below). Ripsy's Recipes has some amazing healthy recipes with gluten free and vegan options that everyone can enjoy. I really wanted to create an easy to follow, non intimidating healthy recipe book for you to love. It truly is my go-to for quick, healthy, easy, delicious meals! The best part of making food is I get to eat it and feed my loved ones. I am very mindful of the ingredients I use in my recipes; at the same time; I still like to indulge in dessert! My dessert recipes are lower in sugar than in any recipe or store bought dessert you will ever find (and they taste amazing). As a result, my family and I get to enjoy it without the guilt. My greatest joy comes from sharing what I make with the people I care about most, and now, you will have access to that too. I hope you try my recipes and love them as much as my family and I do! Namaste Friends!

  1. This is the best kale salad I have ever had!! The dressing really compliments the kale. Thinly slicing the kale definitely makes the texture perfect! Making this again tomorrow.
