Finely chopped kale salad recipes are my new thing.

I’ve always loved kale but it’s just so darn hard to chew sometimes, isn’t it?

Those leaves can be so curly and rough.

Yuck.

Have no fear- grab hold of your knife and do some serious chopping.

It makes a world of a difference and it’s fun to eat something that looks like a bowl of confetti, doesn’t it?

This salad is filled with a ton of veggies and a handful of colors that will brighten your dinner table (or your cubicle at lunch).

And as I mentioned a few months ago- I’m still addicted to walnuts so I have no problem tossing in a few more handfuls of them into this salad as I make it. There’s something about their soft, nutty texture that pairs perfectly with this dressing- it almost tastes like you’re eating a creamy nut butter. I think that’s my I love walnuts so much- they’re just so creamy and tender. Ya know?

Anyway, back to the salad.

Why not start off your holiday season in a few weeks with a bowl of antioxidants and color to get your immune system strong for the winter season ahead. I’ve included my favorite detox veggies so you’ll be happy to know eating a few helpings of this will have you detoxing like a pro!

Serve chilled or at room temperature as a main dish or an appetizer. Feel free to also pair this with your favorite protein like organic chicken, turkey or poached eggs.

Dig in and have a ball. It’s a serious confetti salad that will make it’s way back to your dinner table a few times this fall.

Trust me.

Hi, I'm Amie!

I’m here to share my story of healing with you. I know what it’s like to suffer and not know what’s going on with your body. I’ve been there. I was lost, searching for answers and alone for 10 years until I learned how to get my body working for me, not against me—to address the underlying symptoms instead of using a Band-aid approach to reclaim my vitality. I want to show you that eating and living clean feels incredible. Once you see life this way, you’ll never go back. Ever. Come play along with me on Instagram, Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. I’m here for you. xo

  1. This sounds sooo good. Will definitely have to try, as I have a LOT of kale and greens and beets from my CSA share. Thanks!

  2. This salad looks yummy! I do not think adding Chocolate Chips would be a good add on though! I would love to win some Chocolate chips for my Holiday baking marathon. Salad on the side.
