Kale Salad with Sprouts and Seeds

Rated as 4.86 out of 5 Stars

"I learned how to make this recipe while working at a salad bar grocery store. It was the one item that we had to have to ensure that no riots would start. It is full of delicious super foods and super flavors! Each ingredient should be considered to taste. Some prefer more dressing while others prefer more seeds. Enjoy!"

  1. Whisk liquid amino acid, lemon juice, and olive oil together in a bowl until smooth; add red onion and alfalfa sprouts and stir to coat. Marinate onion and sprouts in the dressing for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Put kale into a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle sunflower kernels, pepitas, and sesame seeds over the kale. Pour the onion and sprout mixture with the dressing over the kale and seeds; mix together by hand to coat kale, massaging dressing into the leaves to soften.
  3. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate salad at least 1 hour.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Low-sodium soy sauce can be used in place of the liquid amino acid.

Very good! I used sweet onions instead of red onions. I added more kale to it 6 hours later to crisp it up again for dinner and it was even better
