Sweet Cabbage and Kale Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing


This summer, we were over good friends of ours house for a BBQ. We had your classic, traditional burgers, chips, dip, and hot dogs. And then, we had “the salad”. It was the most delicious salad that I have ever tasted. Made with a base of cabbage and and kale, Ashley put together this mix of deliciousness that I just had to recreate!

This is a salad that I will enjoy all winter long with the curly kale that will come in our CSA share!

Here is the recipe that I created:

Sweet Cabbage and Kale Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing


  • 2 cups napa cabbage, chopped
  • 1 cups curly kale, chopped
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/8 cup dried cherries (optional)
  • 1/2 chopped pear (with skin on)
  • 1/2 chopped apple (with skin on)
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds (optional)
  • 3/4 cup Lemon Poppyseed Dressing
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1/2 squeezed lime


  1. Toss all ingredients together with the exception of dressing, honey, and lime.
  2. Mix together Lemon Poppyseed Dressing, honey, and lime.
  3. Just before serving, pour dressing over salad and toss.
  4. Serve salad chillled.
