Crunchy Kale Salad-healthy and easily prepared!

Jump to recipe

I think if someone had offered me a kale salad or a new German kale salad 10 years ago, I would have just looked a bit puzzled and my answer would be a firm no, thank you!

Kale sounds like everything to me, just not tasty. But this kale salad, is really tasty and healthy!

How healthy is a kale salad?

  • Contains an extremely high amount of vitamin C.
  • Contains potassium, which means it has a dehydrating effect
  • Contains a lot of iron—good for blood formation
  • Contains a lot of calcium—good for bones and teeth

Wow, it is such a vitamin bomb, a real superfood, so to speak! If you want to make kale in a smoothie, you need a strong mixer, otherwise you won’t get the fibrous leaves mashed into small pieces.

And what makes the kale salad even more practical:

If you have some leftover Kale salad, put it in an airtight container in the refrigerator, and it will still be crunchy to eat the next day. Not as slack as a normal leaf salad. It is therefore perfect to take with you the next day to the office, or simply as a light lunch in the home office.

However, I have to admit that this is not my recipe—it is from my friend Margaret, who brought the salad along for a BBQ. Thank you! Especially a great combination with pistachios, peaches and avocados.

How do I prepare kale salad?

She also gave me the tip to simply pluck the leaves off the kale from the coarse stalks. Then soak in cold water for about 2 minutes and then dry in the salad spinner. If the leaves are still too coarse for you, you can quickly cut them into small pieces with a sharp knife.

I like to serve a sea bream with it and I can imagine a glass of Pinot Gris along with it
