Kale Glow Bowl with Pumpkin Dressing

  • Prep Time: 10
  • Total Time: 10



For the bowl

  • 23 cups kale, de-stemmed
  • juice from 1/2 of a lemon
  • 1 cup cauliflower florets
  • 1 cup shredded purple cabbage
  • 7 grape tomatoes, cut in half
  • 12 large carrots, chopped
  • 1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup cooked brown rice or quinoa
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin/pepita seeds (or sunflower seeds etc.)

For the Pumpkin Dressing

  • 1/4 cup puréed pumpkin (not the pie filling)
  • 3 tablespoons raw apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • pinch of sea salt
  • pinch of black pepper


  1. In a large bowl, combine kale and fresh lemon juice, making sure all the leaves are covered. Set aside for 5 minutes to allow the lemon juice to soften the kale.
  2. Prepare the dressing. In a small bowl, combine all the dressing ingredients and whisk until well combined.
  3. Start to assemble your glow bowl. Add the cauliflower, cabbage, tomatoes, carrots, red onion, brown rice/quinoa and pumpkin seeds.
  4. Pour desired amount of pumpkin dressing over salad and mix well.
  5. Enjoy!


  • Makes 1 large serving or 2 small. I also think raisins would add a nice touch of sweetness to this yummy bowl!
  • Any leftover dressing is good in the fridge for up to a week.
