  • 2 packed cups kale and chard, washed and destemmed
  • 2 cups grated raw carrots or beets, or a combination (see note)
  • 1 cup grated apples
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons unrefined olive oil or sesame oil
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons fresh citrus juice, such as lime
  • 2 tablespoons raw apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin seeds
  • Salt, to taste


If you have a food processor, pulse kale and chard until well chopped but not mush; if not, use knife to finely chop. Place greens, carrots or beets and apples in a large bowl. Add oil, citrus juice and vinegar and combine.

Toast pumpkin seeds in a skillet over medium heat for 5 to 6 minutes, until fragrant and browning. Add to salad, toss and serve. This salad will keep nicely in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Special notes:

Wash vegetables and fruits well, but leave the skin on for grating.
