For the salad:

  • 1/3 purple cabbage head
  • 1/3 white cabbage head
  • 4 cups kale leaves packed, stems removed
  • 2 apples (any type), cored and cut in half
  • 4 persimmons peeled and cut in half
  • 1 cup pomegranate seeds

For the dressing:

  • 1/2 cup chopped chives
  • 2 tablespoons grainy mustard
  • 1/3 cup Coca-Cola
  • 2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar (or any fruity vinegar)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup olive oil OR 1/4 cup of olive oil + 1/4 cup of Mayo (vegan, or any type)


  1. Assemble your food processor with the shredding blade on. Use the larger slicing disc side to have your veggies and fruits sliced bigger for extra texture.
  2. Put the veggies and fruits one after the other, emptying the food processor as needed, and continue until all the veggies and fruits are ready.
  3. Place all the salad veggies and fruits in a large bowl and make your dressing.
  4. In a salad dresser or container with a lid, add all your dressing ingredients. Seal the container and shake it vigorously until the salad dressing is emulsified.
  5. Dress up the salad and serve it with some refreshing Coca-Cola drinks! Enjoy :)

Recipe Notes

  • For extra protein, add some chickpeas, navy beans, lentils, cooked quinoa or barley to this healthy kale salad with apples.
  • If you're into creamy salad dressings, you can add half Mayo (vegan or regular) and half olive oil to the Coca-Cola Dressing. I've made it both ways and found it delicious! It's really up your personal taste!
