Peach Kale Salad with Cheezy Dijon Dressing

When watching JL Fields' video for Vegan MoFo today I learned that is the first ever International Day of Kale! So...happy kale day! I love kale, love it, and so I thought I would honor the day by making a new massaged kale salad! To learn more about massaging kale, check out my first post on this, which you can find here!

Today, I made a kale salad massaged with a cheezy dijon dressing and topped with peach slices, red onion, and almonds! More below!

Peach Kale Salad with Cheezy Dijon Dressing

Makes 1 serving


  • 3 cups de-stemmed and washed kale, chopped
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced
  • 1 peach, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp almonds, chopped or slivered
  • Cheezy Dijon dressing (recipe below)
  • Salt, to taste


1. Massage kale with dressing.
2. Slice peaches, dice red onions, and prepare almonds. Place on salad.
3. Season with salt as desired and enjoy!

Post massage, it's so little!

Cheezy Dijon Dressing

Makes 1/4 cup


  • 1/2 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 3 tbsp white balsamic vinegar (I'm sure that regular balsamic would work as well)
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast


1. Mix until smooth, pour over kale and massage!

All mixed up, so good!!


  1. I've still never tried the massaged kale phenomenon, I really should because this salad looks wonderful.

    1. Thank you! You should definitely try massaging kale! When I tried it kale was forever changed for me!
