The Ultimate Kale Salad

The Ultimate Kale Salad
This is the ultimate Kale Salad, "un je ne sais quoi". This recipe is the creation of a friend in Sedona, using good and fresh ingredients that turn it into a full meal.


  • One bunch of fresh Lacinato Kale, aka Tuscan Kale, aka Dinosaur Kale
  • One small Radicchio
  • Two large lemons
  • 100 grams Parmesan Cheese
  • One handful Pine Nuts
  • ¼ cup Nutritional Yeast (optional)
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Salt



  1. Remove stems from kale by pulling gently folded leaves from stems starting from base of leaves
  2. Discard stems
  3. Chop kale leaves finely and place chopped leaves into large salad bowl
  4. Juice lemons, pour juice onto chopped Kale and mix
  5. Chop radicchio finely and add to bowl
  6. Grate Parmesan cheese and add to bowl
  7. Add handful of pine nuts and Yeast to taste
  8. Add two pinches of salt (not too much as Parmesan is already salty)
  9. Mix well before adding olive oil
  10. Add olive oil and mix until moist
  11. Ready to serve immediately or keep refrigerated (recommend marinating for at least 30 to 60 minutes)


The kale will soften if kept to marinate for a couple of hours in lemon juice. If the kale is finely chopped, it can be served immediately, or kept refrigerated up to 48 hours.


Tip: Prepare in advance, the salad is delicious when all ingredients can soak for 30min to 1 hour.

Anahad created this kale salad inspired by Dr. Andrew Weil, writer of several nutritional books and a creator of "True Foods".

Dr. Lustig's Book

In the late 1970s when the government mandated we get the fat out of our food, the food industry responded by pouring more sugar in. The result has been a perfect storm, disastrously altering our biochemistry and driving our eating habits out of our control.
