  • 3 cups chopped fresh kale
  • 1 can of garbanzos drained (or 1.5 c cooked garbanzos, if you’ve cooked your own from dried)
  • 1/2 medium carrot sliced into thin discs
  • 1/3 cup sliced red onions

Spicy Citrus Vinaigrette

  • 2 large oranges juiced
  • 1 Tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Generous pinch of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Generous amount of ground black pepper


  1. In a small bowl whisk together the dressing ingredients until completely combined. Set aside.
  2. In a larger bowl, combine the kale, garbanzo beans, onions & carrots. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss together until everything is completely coated. Serve immediately or if you prefer softer kale, allow to rest for about 10 minutes before enjoying. Serve as an entree or as a side, but most importantly, enjoy!
