Copycat Superfood Salad

For a while, Chick-fil-A had a salad on the menu called the superfood salad. It had kale and broccolini, dried cherries and mixed nuts. It was such a delicious salad and I was super bummed when they got rid of it. Luckily, I found a copycat recipe in a cookbook by Six Sisters’ Stuff. I leave out the broccolini, but other than that it is a dead ringer. It also keeps for a couple of days in the fridge so it’s nice to munch on through the week.

  • 6 cups chopped kale
  • 1/3 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries
  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup candied nut of your choice

In a medium large bowl, combine kale, sunflower seeds, dried cherries, and nuts. In a small bowl, whisk together cider vinegar, olive oil, honey, maple syrup, sugar, pepper and salt. Pour dressing over salad and toss until leaves are shiny and coated. Refrigerate for 3 hours, or let sit overnight. When serving, top with a few more cherries and nuts. I also like to add chicken or salmon for some protein.
