Good Eats | Kale Salad With Butternut Squash and Chicken

I know the kale salad trend is waning but for me, it's just beginning. A couple years ago, my husband tried to make kale chips and they were gross. It was a fluke because kale is delicious! We've been adding it to our daily veggie mix and it's a nice change from arugula. Bon appétit.

Kale Salad with Butternut Squash and Chicken


  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 shallot, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 bunches kale, stems removed, leaves shredded or finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup chopped, roasted butternut squash (I sprinkled cinnamon on mine instead of vinegar)
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled goat cheese
  • 3 tablespoon dried cranberries
  • 1 grilled boneless breast of chicken, chopped


In a bowl, whisk juice, shallot, honey, salt and pepper flakes. Add kale; toss well. Let sit 20 minutes. Mix in oil. Refrigerate for up to 1 day, or serve immediately. Add almonds, goat cheese, butternut squash and chicken to kale; serve.
