This Kale Power Salad is packed full of tons of healthy green goodies, a perfect way to detox this Fall!

Kale Power Salad

I’m totally obsessed with this salad. I’ve made it 5 times in the past two weeks. It makes a giant batch too, so I eat it for days.

It’s packed full of kale, brussel sprouts, broccoli slaw, craisins, and roasted pumpkin seeds. Then I toss it all in a simple homemade poppy seed dressing.

Are you a brussel sprouts fan? If you’ve never tried them shredded in a salad, you’re definitely missing out. They taste like little cabbages, but pack a powerful amount of nutrients and fiber!

I used to not be a huge fan of kale, but now that I’ve made this salad, I’m a changed woman.

I’m pretty sure you’re going to love this salad too.

You could even throw in some grilled chicken strips for a super healthy lunch or dinner!

What’s not to love about that?!

  • 1 Kale, approximately 4 large stems worth
  • 3/4 lb. brussel sprouts, trimmed
  • 1 10oz broccoli slaw
  • 1/2 cup craisins
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, salted and roasted ,sunflower seeds would work too

For the Dressing:

  • 3/4 cup mayo
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp poppy seeds


  • Rinse the kale and pat dry. Trim the kale leaves from the main stem, and discard the stems. Coarsely chop the kale and place in a large bowl.
  • Shred the brussel sprouts through the chute of your food processor, or thinly slice them to create a fine shred. Place them in the bowl with the kale. Add the package of broccoli slaw, craisins and seeds, then toss.
  • Combine the ingredients for the dressing in a small bowl and whisk until sugar is dissolved. Pour the dressing over the salad and mix to coat. Keep salad refrigerated until ready to serve. Toss once more before serving.
I usually make the full recipe, but before adding the dressing I will place half of the salad in a zip close bag and store in the fridge for a later date. I'll also only use half of the dressing and store the other half.

    I don’t see any rubbing of the cut Kale in your hands. Check out the website for THE CHEW. Daphne does a KALE salad, but rubs the KALE between her hands first before dressing.

      That’s a great tip! You could definitely rub the kale before adding the rest of the ingredients to soften the texture if you prefer. 🙂 Thanks Linda!

      It’s firmer than spinach, and the taste is comparable. You could definitely substitute baby spinach in place of the kale if you’re concerned. 🙂
