RECIPE: Chopped Kale Salad

Hey there friends!

Do you remember when Chick-Fil-A came out with their Chopped Kale Broccolini Superfood Side?  They now have another chopped kale side instead, but I remember trying to make that Superfood side at home for the longest time.  I struggled to get the perfect savory/sweet blend just right...and they don't seem to sell the right dressing pre-made either...

Then it happened one day...almost on accident...long after I had given up...I was just trying to use up some kale in my fridge and needed something quick for lunch.  If you loved the flavor as much as I did of CFA's Superfood Side, here is the recipe...minus the broccolini!

Chopped Kale Salad

Gluten Free, Dairy Free
Prep time: 5- 10 minutes
Total time: 10 minutes
Makes: 4 servings


Dry Ingredients:
4 cups chopped kale

Wet Ingredients:
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon GF soy sauce or coconut aminos
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/4 cup dried cherries or cranberries
1/4 cup chopped pecans or slivered almonds


  1. Chop kale to desirable size and place in a large mixing bowl. I use my ninja blender on pulse for this task. 
  2. Drizzle olive oil, maple syrup, GF soy sauce/coconut aminos, and sesame oil over the chopped kale and stir.
  3. Add dried cherries/cranberries and nuts at the time of serving
  4. Note: this salad tends to get soggy after the second day, so it is best to make the same day that you are going to eat it. 

Happy Pilgrimming
