An incredibly delicious recipe for sweet kale salad with cranberries, almonds, & a creamy homemade greek yogurt dressing. Healthier than Costco’s bagged salad!

Ingredients

Scale
  • 8 oz Brussels sprouts, sliced thin
  • 4 cups kale, loosely packed and then finely chopped
  • 1 cup julienned broccoli stems (from about 2 heads of broccoli)
  • 2 cups thinly sliced cabbage (from about 1/4 head)
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries (how to make your own dried cranberries)
  • 1/4 cup pepitas or sunflower seeds or chopped almonds*
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt (how to make homemade Greek yogurt)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar (how to make homemade apple cider vinegar)
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup or honey (I preferred the taste of maple syrup)
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Place all chopped vegetables, dried cranberries and the seeds/nuts in a very large bowl.
  2. Combine the remaining ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together until the dressing is smooth and creamy.
  3. Add the dressing to the vegetables and toss thoroughly so that everything is coated well.
  4. Ideally, let the salad sit for an hour for the flavors to develop. Or you can serve immediately.

Notes

*The bagged salad from Costco came with pepitas, but sunflower seeds are a less expensive alternative. I’ve also made this salad with chopped almonds when I ran out of pepitas and thought that version was even better!
