Dr. Ann’s Cure-All Kale Salad

Serves 8-10

When I feel like I am coming down with something, this is my go-to cure-all. I eat the entire bowl in 2 different sittings on day 1 of feeling under the weather. It ALWAYS helps me.


  • About 16 cups fresh kale, stemmed and torn into bite-sized pieces or chopped as desired

  • 1 entire head of garlic cloves peeled and freshly chopped

  • 1 3-inch piece of fresh ginger root, finely chopped or grated

  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 2 tbsp toasted sesame oil

  • Juice of 1 lemon

  • 1.5 tbsp low sodium soy sauce

  • 2 tsp honey

  • 12 oz jar of roasted red bell peppers


Put the kale into a large salad bowl. Whisk all of the dressing ingredients (everything but the roasted red peppers) together in a small bowl. Pour the dressing over the kale and then take both of your “clean hands” and firmly massage the kale about 2 minutes or until the leaves begin to soften. Add the roasted red peppers and toss to mix them evenly. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds if desired.
