4 colors pickled kale salad with red cabbage

I created this pickled kale salad by modifying my best pickled red cabbage recipe. It is fast to make, and it comes out bright and delicious. You can eat it right away, or one week later - it will be just as tasty. Not to blow my own horn, but this pickled kale salad turned out better than any other one I tried. And they were made by professional chefs!
This pickled kale salad is vegan, unless you decide to use honey instead of sugar. Enjoy!

4 colors pickled kale salad

  • 1 bunch kale, shredded
  • 1 cup red cabbage, shredded
  • 2 carrots, shredded the match stick style


  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 3 tbsp sugar ( or 4 tbsp honey as a vegetarian option )
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1/4 cup white vine vinegar or white vinegar
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil

  1. Wash and cut kale leaves, discard the stems
  2. Shred the cabbage and carrots (use Borner slicer to make this process enjoyable and fast)
  3. Mix well in a bowl. Leave in the bowl or transfer into the jar.
  4. Prepare the marinade: boil the water, add sugar, vinegar and salt and turn the heat off once sugar and salt are dissolved. Do not add oil. Keep oil in a cup and pour it along with marinade.
  5. Pour the marinade over the salad, and press it well, so that it is covered by marinade.
  6. Ready to eat right away, and stores well in the fridge.

I have just received feedback from my Ukrainian friend. She made pickled kale by my recipe, and she did not find it all that appealing. Sure, when a person grew up eating pickled cabbage, the appeal of pickled kale may be just not there. Pickled cabbage is much tastier, at least for us, Russians and Ukrainians. But we are biased! I consider pickling kale only when I have too much of it and need to store it for a long time. Pickled kale is much tastier in salads, stews and soups than frozen kale or vacuum-packed frozen kale. Just keep this in mind - this is not a recipe that may not blow your mind away, but it is simple and healthy, good looking and tastier than others I've tried.
