Grilled Kale Salad with Lemon Dressing

Grilled Kale Salad with Lemon Dressing

Today we have a WINNING recipe for you so that you can WIN in your nutrition and WIN in life!

Today’s WINNING recipe to meet Coach JC’s 10 WINNING Habits is Grilled Lemon Herb Mediterranean Chicken Salad. Where are my veggies?


For the lemon vinaigrette*

1/4 cup olive oil
1 medium lemon, juiced
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard (certified gluten-free if necessary)

For the kale salad

1 bunch kale, stems removed
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 shallot, sliced thinly
2 medium peaches, sliced
1/4 cup toasted hazelnuts


Combine all vinaigrette ingredients and set aside.

Heat your grill or grill pan to medium.

Brush kale lightly with olive oil on both sides.

Place kale directly on the grill, and cook for 1–2 minutes before flipping and cooking for 1 minute on the other. Kale should wilt and char slightly. Watch closely to ensure it doesn’t burn.

Repeat until all kale has been grilled. Transfer to a serving platter.

Top kale with peaches, shallots and hazelnuts.

Drizzle with dressing as desired.

*Recipe yields roughly 3/4 cup of salad dressing, so don’t feel as though you need to use it all. The dressing keeps well in the fridge.

    "If you want to WIN more in life you are in the right place my friend! I am blessed and privileged everyday to help people WIN more in life.

    I got my start as the youngest Director of Strength & Conditioning at the Division I level at Oral Roberts University and have been blessed to COACH professional athletes from the NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, and WNBA through Dynamic Sports Development. As an ENTREPRENEUR I then started Bootcamp Tulsa to help women WIN in their Fitness, Nutrition & in Life. On a daily basis I now run our Non-Profit, 501 (c) (3), Fit First Responders serving those that serve us everyday, our Police Officers, Firefighters, Medics and national Guard.

    If I'm not helping people WIN through my Performance Coaching you will find me motivating people on stage through my MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKING in churches, companies, universities and athletic organizations. I even took some of that motivation and combined it with a winning game plan to author a few books. I love helping people WIN but there is nothing I'm more passionate about then being a FATHER to my beautiful daughter and a HUSBAND to my hot wife."
