  • 1 bunch kale, stemmed and chopped
  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 4-5 radishes, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds

For the dressing:

  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a large bowl, massage the chopped kale with a bit of olive oil and salt until tender. This helps break down the tough fibers and makes the kale more palatable.
  2. Add the chickpeas, avocado, radish slices, red onion, pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds to the kale. Toss everything together to combine.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients until emulsified. The Dijon mustard helps the oil and vinegar mix together smoothly.
  4. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss until everything is evenly coated. The creamy avocado and dressing will coat the kale and veggies nicely.
  5. Serve immediately and enjoy your nutritious kale and chickpea salad! The different textures and flavors make each bite exciting - from the hearty kale to the crisp radishes to the nutty chickpeas.

This salad is a great option for meal prep too. The sturdy kale holds up well even after being dressed, so you can make a big batch and enjoy it over a few days. Feel free to customize with your favorite veggies, nuts or seeds. You can even add some grilled chicken or salmon on top for extra protein.
