No-Fail Kale Salad by Megan Gilmore (The Detoxinista)

I was never a huge fan of kale and I know a lot of people who aren’t including my husband who actually likes this. Megan is definitely one of my favourite food bloggers. Her first book, Everyday Detox (where this recipe is from) is AMAZING!! I don’t think I’ve EVER tried any of her recipes I didn’t love. Her new book, No Excuses Detox, is now available for purchase. I haven’t picked it up yet but it’s definitely on my list of things to get. You can find her at I think I need to pick up the ingredients to make it this Sunday. It’s been far too long!

Lemon Dressing

  •  ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt


  • 1 pound kale leaves stems removed (about 2 bunches)
  • ¼ red onion, diced
  • 2 carrots, shredded
  • ½ cup golden raisins
  • ½ cup slivered almonds (optional)


  1. Prepare the dressing: Combine all of the dressing ingredients in a small jar with a lid; shake vigorously to mix. Set aside.
  1. Use a sharp knife to chop the kale leaves into small pieces – the smaller, the better. Place the chopped leaves in a large bowl and add the red onion and shredded carrots.
  1. Pour dressing over the vegetables and use your hands to massage the salad. After just a few minutes of squeezing the leaves between your hands they will turn a darker green and have a wilted, silky texture, similar to that of cooked kale.
  1. Add the raisins and almonds and toss well to mix. Store in the fridge until ready to serve or serve immediately.

You can store in fridge for up to 3 days, even with the salad dressing mixed in.  Enjoy!!!
