I have been obsessed with kale lately making all sorts of recipes using this ingredient. I think I am using it at least three times per week using it in all sort of different recipes.

This kale salad is an example. My kids actually enjoyed this kale salad. They like corn a lot so I made sure I added plenty of it to the salad to make sure they would eat. They sure did. They even asked for seconds!

For this kale salad you can add any other veggies of your choice. Chopped peppers and cucumbers would work really good, even peas would work rather well. For my salad version, to add some extra protein, I used sunflower seeds but pumpkin seeds will also work if you like that better.

As far as the dressing, we like our salads with simple dressing flavors so we went ahead and used theKraft balsamic version.

You can use any other flavor though, the sky is the limit.

This kale salad is suitable for those on a cholesterol free or diabetic diet. It is also perfect for those following a vegetarian, gluten free or vegan diet. Its all about the veggies with this salad recipe which is nothing but healthy.

Let me know if you get to try this recipe and if you make a different variation. I would like to know what sort of version you came up with.

Miryam's original recipe

Yield: 4 servings

Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 5 oz fresh baby kale
  • 1 cup frozen corn, thawed out
  • 3 oz cherry tomatoes, halved
  • half onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup baby carrots, chopped
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar dressing
  • 1/4 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

Directions:

In a large mixing bowl add all of the ingredients. Mix through with a large spoon and serve immediately.

You can prepare the salad in advance but add the salad dressing just right before eating the salad otherwise if you let it sit the salad will wilt and the veggies will become mushy.

  1. I made lots of kale salads last days…not my husband’s favourite, but he finished what I put on his dinner plate without complaints. Love yours with cranberry and feta!

  2. I have been following you and making your recipes for a long time, so when I heard your voice on the video I felt like I was listening to and watching an old friend! Thank you for all your delicious recipes!

  3. This is something I would have no issues eating! I was thinking the other day how I wanted a new salad, but all of my recipes seem too sweet. I like the idea of using feta for saltiness (so going out to get me some kale!)

  4. This is one of my favorite ways to have a kale salad!

  5. This looks so fresh and delightful! Thanks for sharing! :)

  6. This looks so light and tasty!!

  7. This is such a delicious recipe for fall, friend! It was so delicious and I love your pictures! 

  8. I love kale! And this salad looks so fresh and healthy! Can’t wait to try this! Thanks for sharing!

  9. Never knew a salad could be so easy and yummy! That dressing looks delicious!! Wish I had this for lunch. Yum! 

  10. This looks really good. I’m a law school student and this would be perfect for an energy boost, healthy, quick lunch or snack. I try to make several meals on the weekend to take to school for the lunch during the week. How long will this salad last if made ahead of time? Also, I don’t have 15-20 mins to spare to wait for the dressing to wilt the spinach on my lunch break, how soon can I put the dressing on if I plan to eat lunch/snack that day? I’m typically at school from 8-5 M-F and eat lunch about Noon. Lastly, what protein would you recommend to add in this salad (chicken)?
    Thank you!

    • This will keep for one day. You can add the dressing in the morning before you head out, it will be totally fine. I think grilled chicken would be great in this :-) Thanks for stopping by.

  11. Sunny days are amazing when you’re in the mood to get out and ENJOY life! But cloudy days are a good excuse to stay in and cook and snuggle ;) Love how puffy and cheesy this quiche looks. yuuuuum!
