Kale and Cranberry Salad

This salad is not only delicious and festive, but it is jam-packed full of nutrient dense foods to boot. It’s a perfect side dish or “heavy appetizer” to bring with you to a Holiday Party. Everyone loves the tangy flavor and it also looks great out on the serving table.


  • 6 cups of chopped kale
  • 1 cup of fresh cranberries
  • 1/2 cup of almond slices
  • 2 TBSP of Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 4 TBSP avocado oil
  • 2 TBSP unsweetened cranberry juice
  • 1/4 tsp of salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
  • 1/8 tsp onion powder


Place the kale in a large bowl and add the apple cider vinegar. Mix the kale until it is well coated. Massage the kale for a few minutes to encourage softening. (Pro tip: If you want to keep your hands clean, you can place the kale and vinegar in a ziplock bag before massaging.) Let the kale sit for 30 minutes and massage again.

Add the avocado oil, cranberry juice, salt, pepper, and onion powder to a small blender. Blend the mixture in high until it creates a creamy dressing.

Toss the kale, cranberries, and almonds in the dressing.

That’s it! Enjoy!
