Coconut Lime Kale Slaw Salad

Posted on May 26, 2014 by Alyssa Cassidy


I love meat. I really love fruit. I also just so happen to LOVE starchy veggies. I could eat my weight in avocado, plantains, and carrots, so sometimes I have to pull myself back a little and remind myself to get more greens. My Amazing Grass smoothies help get a ton of my daily green nutrients, but its nice to eat them as well sometimes. This salad is a result of needing some extra veggies for the day, not having mayo on hand, and celebrating the versatility of nut butter, specifically the creamy, stone ground Dastony kind.

Since I was going to be eating this salad with plantains, I chose lime and coconut to give me a little tropical vibe- they always remind me of a trip to central America, as they were our favorite snack throughout the trip.

This is a great base for adding chicken, oranges, avocado, you name it. I opted to keep mine pretty simple and almost coleslaw like.

  • First pull kale from the stem, and chop into 1/2 inch pieces. I used 4 leaves for about 2 handfuls of chopped kale.

  • Mix with a handful of shredded cabbage.
  • Use a julienne slicer or spiralizer (or just shredded carrots) and shred 1 large carrot.
  • In a small bowl, mix 2 tsp Dastony cashew butter, 3 tsp lime juice, 1 tbsp coconut milk, 1 tsp honey. Mix very well and pour onto salad. 



  • Now get your hands in there and massage dressing into salad well.
  • At this point I added some delicious organic coconut flakes


  • Throw in the fridge to soften a bit, then toss again before serving. I added some cilantro, green onions, and a drop of lime juice right before serving.

It was a great, fresh and light side for dinner… enjoy!
