This copycat Chick-fil-A kale salad has a sweet and tangy dressing coating tender kale and cabbage leaves that have been gently massaged. This salad can sit for an hour or two; just be sure to toss it before serving to redistribute the dressing.

Instructions Checklist
  • Place kale and cabbage in a large bowl. Whisk oil, vinegar, maple syrup, mustard, garlic powder, pepper and salt in a measuring cup. Pour over the kale mixture. With clean hands, massage and crush the greens until the volume is reduced by a third. Stir in almonds before serving.



For the best flavor, toast nuts before using in a recipe. To toast sliced nuts, place in a small dry skillet and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 2 to 4 minutes.
