This kale salad hits the spot on multiple fronts. Kale is a great source of iron, and it goes well with almost anything!


  • 3 cups kale, tough stalk removed and chopped
  • 5 strawberries, sliced
  • 2 tablespoon pepitas + 1 T sugar for caramelizing
  • 12 dates, chopped (pit removed)
  • Pecorino romano
  • Protein & dressing of choice!


  1. Caramelize pepitas in a skillet over medium-low heat for a minute or two. Keep a close eye since they’ll burn easily!
  2. Place kale in salad and top with strawberries, dates, pecorino romano, pepitas and protein of choice.
  3. Drizzle with salad dressing and season to taste with salt and pepper.


This is a basic salad dressing I often pair it with!
