Kale Salad with Chickpeas

Jump to Recipe

This kale salad eats like a meal. You will be surprised at how satisfying this simple salad is.

I first had a version of this kale salad at the Ranch at Live Oak. Chef Kurt Steeber made amazing vegan food. This salad is a delicious meal that only takes a short time to pull together and you can make it the night before and it will stay crisp and fresh for more than 24 hours.

Try making these easy pickled onions to go with this kale salad with chickpeas.
