Kale Salads

Southwestern-Flavored Kale Salad

Southwestern Kale Salad

Kale, corn, avocado, and tomatoes add up to a seriously delicious salad. With the optional beans, it’s a fantastic main dish salad. Without the added beans, it’s a great companion to tortilla specialties containing beans—burritos, enchiladas, and the like. Recipe adapted from  Wild About Greens by Nava Atlas. more→

Quinoa, kale, and artichoke salad recipe

Any time you put kale and quinoa together, it’s a winning duo. Not only are they both nutritional powerhouses, they taste and look fantastic together. Cook quinoa ahead of time, and this salad can be made in a snap. For an easy meal, serve with Sweet and Savory Sautéed Tofu, and corn on the cob or baked sweet potatoes. Photos by Hannah Kaminsky.

Chickpea and kale sandwich spread recipe

Chickpeas and kale are a tasty team, and this combination makes a great spread for bread, or a filling for pita bread or a wrap with some tender lettuce and sliced tomatoes. Or, simply place a scoop of it on a bed of leafy greens or in a Bibb lettuce leaf, and garnish with tomatoes and/or black olives. more→

Cranberry Kale Salad

CranberryKaleSalad

If you want an easy way to add some greens to your holiday table, this salad is for you.  My Grandpa used to make cranberry bread for Thanksgiving, and this is basically that — in salad form.  Cranberries, walnuts, orange, all mixed together … it’s like the holidays in a bowl!   Originally posted at and reprinted from Esther at A,B,C,Vegan. This makes a moderate amount as everyday fare, so if you’d like a larger portion to serve at holiday meals, the recipe doubles or triples easily. Photos by Rachael Braun.  more→

Raw Sweet Potato and Kale Salad with Coconut-Lime Dressing

Sweet Potatoes on table

This variation of Raw Sweet Potato and Cabbage Salad with Coconut-Lime Dressing was inspired by Ricki Heller of Diet, Dessert, and Dogs. She took my aforementioned recipe and varied it by using raw kale. The combination of raw sweet potato and raw kale (two veggies more commonly eaten cooked) is amazing. A small amount of red cabbage is added for color and crunch. more→
