Kale Salad with Orange Brown Sugar Vinaigrette


I am absolutely in love with Chick-fil-a's Superfood Salad. So much so that I have been on this quest to imitate it. While I'm not quite there yet, I have finally perfected my kale salad recipe. The key 🔑 is massaging the kale with olive oil.

Here is my kale salad recipe with my homemade orange brown sugar vinaigrette dressing. 


1 bunch of kale

1 pinch of salt

1-2 tsp olive oil


1 cutie orange

2 Tbs olive oil

1/4 white vinegar

1/4 cup cranberries

1 tsp brown sugar

1/4 cup walnuts (sliced)

1/2 scallion (Sliced)


  1. Wash and remove kale from stem; chop and place in bowl.

  2. Add olive oil, and massage kale with hands until leaves darken and tenderize. Sprinkle with salt

  3. For dressing and toppings, heat olive oil in small skillet. Sauté scallions

  4. Add cranberries, walnuts, and brown sugar. Squeeze cutie and add vinegar

  5. Stir to combine ingredients and heat for 3 min or less. Allow to cool

  6. Pour toppings over salad, mix, and enjoy!
