Spicy Kale Salad with Pineapple, Coconut & Ginger Miso Dressing

Sick of kale salads yet? I’m not. Never will be. I love it so much I could eat it every day. In any form. Kale rocks!

But, for the haters…

This is not your average kale salad. Bright sweet pineapple, loads of texture from the cashews & coconut and spicy heat from the jalapeños. So delicious. And the dressing… The miso-ginger-sesame combo is just divine.



  • 2 Tbsp white miso
  • 2 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 2 tsp lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Shredded, massaged kale, about 5 cups
  • Chopped fresh pineapple, about 2 cups
  • Roasted salted cashews, about 3/4 cup
  • Chopped cilantro, about 1/4 cup
  • Shredded coconut (sweetened or not), about 2 Tbsp
  • Sliced fresh jalapeños, about 2 Tbsp


  1. To make the dressing whisk together the miso, vinegar, honey, ginger, sesame oil, lime juice, olive oil and salt.
  2. For the salad toss together the kale, pineapple, cashews, cilantro, coconut and jalapeños.
  3. Toss the salad with the dressing and serve.
