This Everyday Kale Salad with Meyer Lemon Dressing hits all the right notes. It’s hearty, fresh, zippy, and it couldn’t be simpler to make. Plus, once you make this salad I swear you’ll eat way more kale because it’s just that flavorful. Here, Lacinato kale is dressed with a bright, naturally sweet Meyer Lemon Dressing. Meyer lemons are much sweeter than regular lemons, and they are thought to be a cross between a lemon and a mandarin orange. I am slightly obsessed with Meyer lemons when they come into season and I think you will be, too.
Let’s talk about how this salad comes together. This recipe is shockingly low-maintenance for how delicious it is, which means I’m much more likely to throw it together on a weeknight when I just want something easy. To make this recipe, you’ll whisk up the dressing, toss in the kale, and really massage the kale with your hands for a minute to help take the bitter edge off. Let the salad sit for about 30 minutes and you’re good to go! Enjoy the salad as is, or top it with your favorite crunchy and creamy fixin’s.
