This salad is great served warm or cold. It keeps well when stored in the refrigerator, and can be prepared ahead of time. I used the Lacinato kale variety, but curly kale would also work.


  • 8 - 10 small yellow potatoes, quartered
  • 3 cups kale, super finely shredded
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/4 cup stone ground grainy mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives or scallions, chopped
  • sea salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste


  1. Cook the potatoes in boiling water until tender, drain when they are done cooking and then set them aside.
  2. In a medium bowl toss the finely shredded kale with the lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of olive oil and a pinch of salt. Massage together with your hands for 3 minutes - it will turn slightly wilted and bright green.
  3. In a small mixing bowl combine the remaining olive oil, mustard, garlic powder, chives, and season with salt and pepper. Mix well until the dressing is smooth and creamy. In a large bowl combine the potatoes, kale and grainy mustard dressing. Combine well and serve warm, or refrigerate until desired temperature has been reached.
