Directions

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Place kale in a large serving bowl; add 1 teaspoon olive oil and 2 pinches salt. Gently massage the oil and salt into kale. Set aside to allow kale to soften, about 10 minutes.
  2. Combine 1/4 cup olive oil, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, maple syrup, cumin, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper in a plastic or glass container with a lid. Cover container and vigorously shake until dressing is light yellow and evenly combined.
  3. Layer carrots, roasted corn, tortilla chips, almonds, and smoked cheese on top of kale. Drizzle dressing over salad. Mix salad using tongs to evenly distribute. Gently stir eggs into salad.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Depending on the size of the lemons, maple syrup may need to be increased if the dressing is too tangy.
  • I always taste-test the dressing before adding it to the salad. So I recommend tasting and adjusting the maple syrup, salt, pepper, and/or Dijon mustard.

Had to buy more kale after I tried this recipe. I shift it up adding cranberries, grated zukes. Awesome!

Sooo good! I was tired of my usual kale salad recipe with cranberries and sunflower seeds. This was a very welcome change. I have been sharing it with all my family.

This was a great recipe! We left out the eggs and it was still great! Even my kids loved it!

delicious! I left out the corn and tortilla strips. still fantastic!
