Kale Power Salad with Dijon Vinaigrette

Kale Power Salad 2

As part of our weight loss challenge, I will be sharing with my family as well as with my blog’s readers a number of healthy recipes I’ve found along the way.

This power salad is packed full of goodness and it’s even pretty to look at.

Kale Power Salad with Dijon Vinaigrette


  • 3 1/4 cup of chopped kale, stem removed
  • 3/4 cup of purple cabbage, julienned
  • 6 tablespoons green pepper, julienned
  • 6 tablespoons carrot, julienned
  • 3 tablespoons tomatoes, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons peanuts, dry roasted and unsalted
  • 1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained


  • For individual take-to-work lunches, divide each ingredient in three separate containers and mix together. Refrigerate and eat within 3-4 days. Add dressing when you are ready to eat.
  • For a family meal, combine all ingredients in a bowl and drizzle dressing over top.

For 21 day fixers out there: This recipe makes 3 servings each comprised of 2 green, 1 yellow, 1/2 blue, and 1 orange container. Making up this recipe at the beginning of the week gives you three days worth of lunches that are ready to grab and go!
