Kale Salad with Chicken

Makes lunch for two.

Approximate cooking time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch lacinato kale (enough for about 6 cups of chopped leaves)
  • 2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • juice of 1 small lemon
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 (6 oz each) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and sliced
  • 1/4 cup toasted sunflower seeds

Instructions

  1. Wash kale and remove leaves from woody stems. Slice leaves thinly.
  2. In a large bowl, combine kale, olive oil, lemon juice, sea salt (if desired) and freshly ground black pepper. Toss to coat leaves completely.
  3. Divide kale into two bowls. Top each salad with a cooked chicken breast and sunflower seeds to serve.

  1. I can’t wait to try this- it looks SO yummy! Kale has really started to grow on me the past few months, and what isn’t there to love about chicken? Definitely going to be trying this in the coming week!

    I added half an avocado with the dressing ingredients and really worked them into the kale leaves with my hands. Chopped apple and walnuts go nicely with the chicken as well! Yum! Great recipe.
