Kale Salad with Homemade Mango Dressing


Healthy raw kale salad recipe with homemade mango salad dressing. The salad includes fresh curly kale, tomatoes, mangoes, dried cranberries and silvered almonds.


Quick, tasty and healthy kale salad with homemade mango dressing. This raw kale salad is so refreshing with the perfect sweetness from a fresh mango dressing, and tanginess from fresh lime juice. Kale salads are perfect for quick lunch or as a side dish to all your favorite dinner meals.  Kale is one of the cruciferous vegetables that offer a ton of health benefits. It is packed with vitamins, minerals and brain-boosting phytonutrients.  Kale is also a versatile vegetable and tastes great whether served cooked or raw.


I made this kale salad in a big batch and my husband packed up some of the leftovers for lunch. Just be sure to pour in the dressing before serving as it keeps the freshness of the kale and other healthy toppings for this salad. For this recipe, I used a combination of dried cranberries, unsalted almonds, tomatoes and fresh mangos. I called this a “Superfood Salad”. kale-salad-mango-dressing

I chose to pair this healthy kale salad with my homemade mango salad dressing. You can find the recipe of mango dressing here. I use the most tender kale I can find. For this salad recipe, I cut curly kale and cut it into very thin filaments and chop it finely.

    First of all, I LOVE your photos! I’ve never tried kale salad… I’ve had kale chips, but other than that I never really got into the kale frenzy.

    I haven’t had a kale salad as yet, nor mango dressing-so this should be an adventure for my taste buds for sure-looking forward to new tastes-thanks!
