Kale is an incredible beauty superfood that is one of my personal favorites. It is packed with phytochemicals, fiber and chloropyll, a major blood builder. The cleaner the blood the more beautiful we are.

Instead of cooking it, it can be tenderized with lemon and other dressing ingredients and made into a salad. I eat this hearty, delicious salad for part of dinner at least several nights a week. This incredible salad provides a substantial mix of protein-building amino acids, enzymes, minerals (including important ones found in sea vegetables), and antioxidants. 

Dharma’s Kale Salad Recipe
(Makes 1-2 servings)
Serves: Serves 2
  • 1 head lacinato kale
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 small avocado
  • 3 Tbs. nutritional yeast
  • Cayenne pepper, to taste
  • 2 handful sprouts, any kind
  • 1 tomato, cubed
  • Juice of a lemon
  • 1-2 Tbs. dulse flakes (totally optional)
  • Handful of dill, parsley or cilantro, or combination (optional)
  1. Tear the kale leaves off the stem and place into a mixing bowl.
  2. Add a pinch of sea salt, and tear into bite-sized pieces.
  3. Core and scrape out the avocado flesh into the bowl, and massage the kale with the avocado and lemon juice.
  4. Mix in the nutritional yeast and cayenne pepper.
  5. Then, mix in the sprouts, tomato and dulse flakes, herbs of choice and add a little more sea salt, if desired.

  • This has been a staple for me ever since I read the recipe in BDS…now I’m addicted to eating raw kale salads! They’re the best!!

  • Hey Kim I loved this salad along with the many other recipes I have tried! I have a question that is not related to the salad and didn’t know where else to post.

    I have been Raw for 4 months. I started a juice cleanse on Dec 30th for seven days then started the Raw diet. The only food I cooked was beans in a slow cooker on a weekly basis because I thought I needed them for the protein, but now realiz I don’t so I’ve stopped eating them by the end of March. In the past I was diagnoised with Anemia and my thyroid was sluggish, but now my blood work came back stating I was no longer Anemic but I still don’t have the energy I need. In the past when I took a Kelp supplement that took care of both my Anemia and Thyroid issues and not I find unless I take the kelp or eat Kelp, my energy level is really low. I drink at least a blender full of green smoothies a day which includes either 6 cups of spinach or 4 cups of kale with a banana, apple,pear or mango and banana. I have tried your smoothie but until I get a vitamixer, it was too much for my blender.

    Any Suggestions?

  • I’ve been put on a strict candida diet and can’t do the nutritional yeast, but really want to try this salad. Does not adding it really effect the taste and if so what would be the best substitute?

    • nutritional yeast is not from the candida species. if you’re going to go on a strict diet it’s probably best to know the actual foods you need to avoid. in general though it’s probably going to be pretty hard for you to “strictly” avoid it as it’s on your skin and throughout your respiratory tract.

      • Going on a candida diet doesn’t mean you are trying to avoid contact with candida; it’s a diet designed to reduce candida infections. People on a candida diet avoid certain foods like sugar and alcohol, and many also avoid consuming other forms of yeast.

    • Kimberly very clearly says in her book that the Dharma Kale Salad was inspired by an individual she knew, and not the Dharmaland web site, Dharma is actually not the most uncommon name, especially once you’re living in the world of kale/yogis/veganism/pure plant energy/etc. Have some kale! Relax!

  • I made this salad with curly kale and found the texture too tough. So I blended the salad with some water into a green smoothie (eliminating my texture problem) and really enjoyed it!

    • Did you try massaging the kale before adding your dressing? I find that rubbing the leaves softens the kale leaving it less rough. :)

  • Hello,
    I have just ready that there is a
    BIG Raw Kale’s Dark Side
    Kale’s oxalic acid can cause muscle weakness
    Raw kale can cause painful sex
    Kidney stone risk
    Gout risk
    Lowered thyroid function (goitrogenic)

    What should we do about it?
    It is always best to steam the kale then?

    Thank you very much :).

  • Hi Kim!
    I absolutely love all of your recipe ideas but the only problem is that I am allergic to citrus (lemon, lime, orange, pineapple etc). It is such a shame because I know how beneficial lemons are for your health and because so, you use it in A LOT of your recipes (including this spectacular looking Dharma Kale Salad). I have been trying for years to find some kind of substitute but no luck. If you have any recommendations that would be GREATLY appreciated!!!
    Thanks Kim, you are wonderful

    • Hi Celia, one nice/healthy “superfood” substitute for lemon (at least in salads) is Apple Cider Vinegar. It provides some of the “tang/sour” flavor and brings many health benefits, so you may want to try that. It won’t work so well in smoothies, but you can also drink it with water first thing in the morning similar to how I recommend the lemon water and it will help your digestion and make you more alkaline.
