Crunchy Kale Chopped Salad with 3-Ingredient Hummus Dressing - Dallas Metro Moms


A salad you can prep ahead makes weekday lunches or dinners come together quickly. This kale salad from Kathleen Ashmore is served with a super-easy homemade hummus dressing (just combine hummus, olive oil, lemon and salt).  Add grilled chicken or chickpeas for extra protein and enjoy all week long!



  • 1 English cucumber diced
  • 2 heads Tuscan kale stemmed and chopped
  • 1 head of fennel diced
  • 2 red yellow or orange peppers, diced
  • 4 green onions thinly sliced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes diced
  • 3/4 cup toasted pumpkin seeds
  • ¾ cup feta cheese broken up

Creamy Hummus Dressing:

  • ½ cup hummus
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • Juice from ½ of a lemon
  • ¼ teaspoon Kosher salt


Make the Dressing:

  • If your hummus is very smooth and “drippy” this will come together easily in a mixing bowl. If it’s thicker, a high speed blender makes quick work of it.
  • Combine the dressing ingredients and whisk or blend until very smooth.


  • In a large serving bowl, combine all of the salad ingredients.
  • Pour dressing over the salad and mix well.
  • Serve.
