Copycat Chick-Fil-A Kale Crunch Salad

Chick-fil-a’s Kale Crunch salad is one of my favorite salads. I was determined to find a great copycat recipe and this one fits the bill! If you’d like to check out the original, you can find it from State of Dinner.


  • 1 small shallot finely chopped
  • 3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Kale Crunch Salad
  • 4 cups curly leaf kale chopped
  • 2 cups green cabbage or Brussels sprouts chopped or shredded
  • ¼ cup almonds sliced or slivered
  • ¼ cup shaved Parmesan (optional)


  1. Whisk the chopped shallots, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, and dijon mustard in a small bowl or jar. 
  2. Slowly pour the olive oil in with a steady stream while whisking continuously. You can also use an immersion blender to mix the oil into the dressing.
  3. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  4. Toss the chopped kale and cabbage in a large serving bowl. Sprinkle with almonds and Parmesan cheese, if using.
  5. Drizzle with the apple cider-dijon dressing and toss to coat.
  6. Serve immediately.
