Supermodel Superfood Salad

Deliciously healthy salad packed with superfood goodness for a supermodel look!

If it was possible for a vegetable to be sexy, then kale would be a supermodel. It is the “hottest” vegetable in town for a good reason. According to Web MD, one cup of kale provides 5 grams of fiber, 15% of calcium and B6, 40% magnesium, 180% vitamin A, 200% vitamin C and 1,020 % vitamin K. Those are impressive numbers toward the daily 100% of each needed, and all in 36 little calories per serving. It is also a good source of antioxidants like beta-carotene and folic acid. Move over spinach, no wonder kale is known as a “super food” and this supermodel superfood salad places it in the star position.

New salad recipes are always exciting. A fresh, new salad means exciting lunch for the next few days and a new party dish in your repertoire. Healthy salads are an even better find because you can eat them guilt-free and really feel as if you are filling up mid-day. The other great thing about superfood salads is sharing new, healthy foods with friends and family. When you bring this salad to your next get together, everyone will rave.

  1. Hi, Kat! This salad would serve two generously, or 3-4 as a side salad. I often have a friend over for lunch and we eat this as our main course with maybe a cold soup on the side. I have eaten it the next day and it is still good, but I probably wouldn't go much longer than that. You can make it about 30 mins to an hour ahead of time for the kale to soften a little bit if you would like.
    I hope you enjoy it!

  2. Hey Ali.  We've been on the "add more kale" bandwagon too.  I'm having a hard time finding anything but the curly variety these days in Houston grocery stores. Are you able to find dinosaur here (my fav, too)? You mentioned currants but didn't see this listed on the ingredients. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I'll definitely give it a try. I have another recipe that I'll email to you…. even lower cal (no oil).

  3. Yes, that will be added, sorry! You also do dried currants to taste, approx 1/4 cup, but again if you like more that is ok. I just got the dinosaur kale at HEB on Buffalo Speedway. They usually have it!

  4. That is it! You can use any kind of kale you like and add more of any ingredients to taste!

  5. That is it! You can use any kind of kale you like and add more of any ingredients to taste!

  6. Hi Gale, where did the Supermodel Superfood salad recipe go? It's empty above . It was so good – want to make it again and make sure I get it right . 🙂 Thanks!

  7. We love kale salads now too and have completely ditched traditional lettuces. This recipe is great. We add diced apples (typically pink lady) for added sweetness and crunch. Thanks for sharing

  8. I think I'm either figuring something wrong or the calorie/fat/carb count is off on this recipe. I LOVE this recipe, but I get, per serving (assuming that the amount of servings is correct as 2): 542 calories; 30 grams of carbs; 43 grams of fat; and 16 grams of protein with 4 grams of fiber. I was pretty disheartened thinking I had just blown my lunch and 2 snack food allowance!

    1. Thanks for the heads-up, Tallula. Our recommended serving size was off. The recipe yields 4 servings. It has now been adjusted.
