Massaged Kale Salad

This kale salad is so yummy and perfect for spring and summer! No cooking required, you just massage and let it “marinate”. Then, you can top it with whatever you want! I love topping it with whatever fruit is in season!

Massaged Kale Salad

  • Servings: about 4
  • Time: 10 min prep, let sit a few hours if you have time
  • Print


bundle (or two if small) of organic Lacinato kale, chopped

1 T fresh lemon, lime, grapefruit, or orange juice

1 T olive or avocado oil

a little salt (optional)

any fruits you like: berries, apples, citrus, pomegranate seeds….

any nuts you like: walnuts, pecans, sunflower seeds….

any cheese you like, if desired: goat cheese is my personal fave


Place your chopped kale in a large bowl. Combine citrus juice with oil and some salt in another small bowl and pour over kale. Massage kale and oil mixture with hands for a minute until you notice kale breaking down. Let it sit in fridge for a bit until ready to serve.

Top with desired fruit, nuts, and cheese. Enjoy!

*The massaged kale will last in the fridge for a few days so it’s a great meal prep option!
