Salmon Kale Salad with Cucumbers, Red Onion and Sharp Cheddar

A kitchen sink salad. I usually keep a small salad bar in my fridge that I make up on Sundays and assemble a salad quickly in the morning or the night before. Kale is a tough green so it can take a lot of abuse and not wilt. Feel free to accommodate this with your tastes!



1/2 cup smoked salmon, chopped

2 cups kale , tough stems removed

1/4 cup chopped red onion

1 cup chopped cucumber, or sliced

1/4 cup sharp cheddar, shredded

1 hardboiled egg, chopped

Pink Himalayan salt

Freshly cracked black pepper


1 tablespoon grain mustard

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar


Whisk dressing and set aside. If it is too thick, add a couple teaspoons of water. If too thin, add some more lemon juice.

Toss ingredients in a separate bowl or container, and add dressing when ready to eat.

Transports well!
