Kale and Garbanzo Beans Salad 


Serves: 4


  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon sea salt (or to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • dash cayenne pepper (or to taste)
  • 1 packed cup kale, thinly sliced
  • One 15 oz can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons red onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 cup red bell pepper, diced



  1. Place the lemon juice, olive oil, salt, turmeric and cayenne pepper in a medium sized bowl and mix well.
  2. Add sliced kale to the salad dressing and massage the dressing into the kale with your hands. (Warning: your hands may turn a little yellow. Just wash off with soap or use plastic gloves).
  3. Add garbanzo beans, red onion and red bell pepper and mix well.
  4. Serve or refrigerate until serving. This makes a great "make ahead" salad since none of the ingredients get soggy.
