Inspired by, my Herby Summer Kale Salad


  • 1 bunch lacinato kale
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice, divided
  • 1 cup green cabbage, shredded
  • 1/2 cup raw beets, shredded
  • 1/4 cup green scallion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped
  • 1 orange, segmented {see notes}
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • sea salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste


Wash, dry and remove the center ribs from the kale. Shred it finely.

In a large mixing bowl combine the kale with 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 tablespoon lemon juice and a pinch of salt. Massage it with your hands for 1 - 2 minutes or until the kale is bright green and pliable. 

Add in the cabbage, beets, scallions and parsley and toss well. Next add in the oranges and pomegranate seeds.

In a small bowl whisk together the remaining olive oil, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, a pinch of salt and pepper. Then drizzle the dressing over the salad. 

Recipe Notes

If you don't have oranges on hand, any winter citrus would work. Clementines, mandarins, grapefruits and/or tangerines would also be delicious.
