  • 1 pound raw kale, roughly chopped or ripped into smaller pieces
  • 10-15 mini sweet bell peppers, sliced or chopped 
  • 2-3 Tbsp Dijon mustard 
  • 2-3 Tbsp olive oil 
  • 1-2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar 
  • 1-2 Tbsp raw honey 
  • Salt & pepper, to taste 


  1. Toss raw kale into a large bowl. Slice or chop mini peppers and toss over the top. 
  2. In a smaller, separate bowl, whisk together remaining ingredients. Adjust ingredients as needed to match your taste preference. 
  3. Pour dressing over the kale and toss until leaves are evenly coated. There should be enough dressing to coat but not enough to pool at the bottom of the bowl.  
  4. Enjoy! 

RD Tip: The longer the kale leaves marinate in this dressing, the better it tastes! Works well prepared ahead of time, and eaten a day or two later.
