There is this salad kit with kale, pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries and poppy seed dressing from Costco that every other person picks up, possibly for the poppyseed salad dressing. Without reading the ingredients, it most definitely seems like you are eating healthy, but once you read the long list of what goes into the poppyseed dressing, you may want to think twice about picking up the salad kit. Here is a copycat recipe of the sweet kale salad, but with much healthier dressing ingredients and fresh chopped veggies. You will love this salad recipe not just for it’s taste, but also for the simplicity in making it yourself.
I try and sneak in kale into our family meals whenever I can, but sometimes I crave just a fresh, crispy and sweet salad. This salad includes a superfood winning combination of fresh ingredients, so here is what you will need:
Green Kale: The world’s best source of vitamin K.
Green Broccoli: Builds collagen.
Brussel Sprouts: Minerals and antioxidants.
Cranberries: The dried kind.
Pumpkin seeds: Very High in magnesium.
Cabbage Green: Improves digestion.
- 2-3 stems green kale
- 1 head green broccoli
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
- 9-10 Brussel sprouts
- 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1/4 green cabbage
How to Make a Superfood Salad at Home:
You can make a small salad or a party-sized bowl, but the amount of ingredients listed makes a medium-sized bowl of salad if you use the same amount of each ingredient.
Chop the veggies:
- Broccoli florets
- Kale leaves
- Chopped green cabbage
- Chopped brussels sprouts
- Add dried cranberries and pumpkin seeds to the large bowl. Toss together.
The Poppyseed Dressing Recipe with Just 4 Ingredients
I love using this salad dressing for the salad. It’s a dressing that you will not find at any grocery store. It’s made with mayonnaise, sugar, apple cider vinegar, and poppy seeds. You will find that the dressing is sweet and tangy just like a poppyseed dressing should be.
Combine the simple ingredients together in a bowl.
