Kale and Cabbage Salad

I love this kale and cabbage salad. It is fresh, tasty, healthy and keeps beautifully! The best part is that it has so much going on, it easily makes a satisfying meal. Full of nutrient dense kale and cabbage, pumpkin seeds and dried cranberries, you can really sink your teeth into this one.


Winter Salad at Kale


Kale is one of the greens that you should be including in your diet. Kale is a nutritional star! Full of fiber, antioxidants, vitamins B6, K, C, A and phytonutrients. It also has lutein, which is great for your eyes! Don’t be afraid to cook some kale too as it’s vitamin K levels increase a ton. I like to eat both raw and cooked to cover all my bases.

Just remember that kale is one of the greens that you should be buying organic as kale may contain organophosphate insecticides, which EWG characterizes as “highly toxic” and of special concern.


We all know that cabbage is one of the cruciferous veggies that are so good for us and purple cabbage has an even higher concentration of  anthocyanin polyphenols, which are significantly more protective phytonutrients than green cabbage.

Mix up a big batch of this (the recipe makes a large batch). It will keep well for days.

    Hi Susan,

    I made this today and I took a serving to my friend who is not Raw but was introduced to it by me and her cousin stopped by and she tried some of it and both of it raved about how delicious it was.

    I think this salad is one of the best I’ve tasted, I went a few weeks ago to Veggie Grill in Hollywood and I have to say your salad was better than there’s and the best that I have tried.

    Thank you so much I think this is going to be my “Go To Salad” for now on!

    Definitely going to try more of your recipes!

    This is one of my favorite recipes in your sight! My teenage daughter loves it, and she’s not to keen on kale. It jeeps for several days and is so filling that we often eat it as a full meal. Thanks!

    In this salad, I just mix it in. 🙂
