Servings6 side servings


  • 1 large bunch kale
  • 15 oz. can garbanzo beans
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup hemp hearts (optional)

For the chia-balsamic dressing:

  • 1/3 cup water
  • 3 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 clove finely minced garlic (or shallot)
  • 1 Tbsp. chia seeds
  • 1/4 tsp. salt


  • Make the dressing: in a bowl, whisk together all ingredients. The dressing will thicken a bit after sitting. (Tip: for an even smoother/thicker dressing you can pulse in a blender.)
  • Tear the kale into bite-size pieces. Place in a large bowl and lightly massage. Pour desired amount of dressing over top, and lightly toss to coat. (If you have any unused dressing, store in a covered container. It stores in the fridge for about 4-5 days.)
  • Rinse and drain beans. Add to kale.
  • Thinly slice onion, and strawberries. Add to salad with blueberries.
  • Sprinkle sunflower seeds and hemp hearts on top. We find it keeps covered in the fridge for about 2-3 days.
