What is a Superfood Salad? 

Superfood Salad

In a recipe for superfood salad, you’ll find all the health benefits of superfoods combined into one bowl. There is a long list of superfoods out there, and they’re all given their name thanks to their high nutritional value.

Superfoods deliver a high volume of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients in every serving. Even though the term isn't very old, foods that fit under it have been popular for centuries because they are good for your health.

People love superfoods because they’re extremely healthy and deliver plenty of vitamins and nutrients for minimal calories. This means you can enjoy a hearty serving of superfoods without having to worry about excessive weight gain.

A superfood salad is the healthiest salad you can make because it doesn’t rely on heavy dressings or high-fat ingredients. Instead, it combines the flavor and texture of select superfoods to deliver a delicious combination that’s great anytime of the day.

What’s more, you can eat a superfood salad and get over half, if not all, of your daily serving of greens in one meal. 

Our recipe for superfood salad combines some of the best immune-boosting superfoods with hearty greens for a balanced, textured meal that will fill you up. 

What goes in a superfood salad? 

The first thing you need is, of course, a base. Kale is a fantastic base, as this powerful super green packs plenty of vitamins K, C, A, and B6 into a serving, along with other nutrients like magnesium and calcium.

Spinach is also a great choice, as it's a great source of vitamins C and K, iron, calcium, folic acid, and carotenoids. Carotenoids are antioxidants that help your body fight off disease and illness. 

Next, every good recipe for a superfood salad needs toppings. These are what create depth and allow you to pack a lot of nutritional value into just one bowl.

Our go-to superfood salad toppings are broccoli, edamame, and chickpeas. All three of these superfoods make for a fantastic combination that’s textured, filling, and an excellent source of fiber. 

Fiber is such a beneficial ingredient in salads because it helps slow down digestion. Have you ever eaten a salad and still felt hungry? Some people are so used to salads being starters that they don’t even think to make them entire meals on their own!

By incorporating fiber into our recipe for superfood salad, we’ve made a dish that keeps you fuller for longer. You’ll not only love the experience of eating the dish, but you’ll also feel completely satisfied after the fact.

If you’re looking for superfoods for weight loss, then a salad like this is one of the best options. Before we delve into the recipe, let’s take a closer look at the ingredients and see what each one contributes to your health.

The superfood salad contains:


Kale is a dark leafy green that is full of antioxidants, vitamins, and beta carotene, a pigment in vegetables that gives them their color while serving as a strong antioxidant for humans. A cup of raw kale has only 33 calories and 7 grams of carbohydrates. It’s a fantastic source of vitamins, K, A, C, and nutrients such as potassium, magnesium, iron, and thiamin.


There are many reasons why fibrous spinach is a staple in a healthy diet. It can help prevent cancer, stabilize blood sugar levels, lower hypertension, support strong vision, and more. Its strongest nutrients are vitamins A and C, iron, and magnesium. It also contains a good dose of calcium, potassium, and sodium.


This soybean is found throughout parts of East Asia and commonly enjoyed in Japan as an appetizer. A cup of edamame has 224 calories, 13.8 grams of carbohydrates, and 18.5 grams of protein. It makes a great source of plant protein, vitamin C, calcium, iron, and folates, which helps your body make DNA.


Whether you know them as chickpeas or garbanzo beans, these legumes are rich in folates, iron, calcium, fiber, and phosphorus. Among its health benefits are slower, smoother digestion, and improved brain function. The nutrient choline helps your brain produce more neurotransmitters and improve memory.


Despite its appearance, broccoli is actually a part of the cabbage family. This flowering green contains plenty of fiber and up to 90% of your recommended daily intake of vitamin C when consumed raw. Chopped broccoli makes a great salad topping, and it can also double as a crunchy snack.


The numerous health benefits of carrots are thanks to their high content of beta carotene, antioxidants, fiber, potassium, and vitamin K1. Eating carrots raw or cooked can help you improve your eyesight, lower blood pressure, and possibly prevent stomach, colon, and prostate cancer. It’s also a great food for weight loss because you can enjoy plentiful servings as a healthy snack with little calories. 

We’ve also included a dressing that uses just three ingredients (minus the seasoning): extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, and parsley. EVOO, as it's known and loved, contains omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, both of which are part of the Mediterranean diet, which has been shown to lower the risk of heart disease, obesity, and type 2 diabetes.

Lemon juice adds a citrusy zest to the dressing, and although the quantity is small, it can still contain antibacterial benefits and a good dose of cancer-fighting flavonoids.

Recipe for a Superfoods Salad

Serving size:

Prep time: 10 minutes


  • 1 cup of chopped spinach
  • 1 cup of chopped kale
  • ½ cup of peeled edamame
  • ½ cup of chickpeas
  • ¼ cup chopped broccoli 
  • ¼ cup shredded or grated carrots 

Dressing ingredients: 

  • 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped parsley 
  • 2 teaspoons of lemon juice 
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Thoroughly wash all vegetables separately (except for greens) and strain. Run through a salad spinner or pat dry with paper towels to remove excess water. This extra step will keep your salad from being soggy.

  2. Chop kale and spinach into thin pieces.

  3. Boil and steam edamame according to package directions. You can cut down prep time by purchasing shelled edamame beans that are ready to cook and eat.

  4. Make sure that chickpeas have been rinsed completely, as the aquafaba left on them could leave a slimy residue on your salad leaves.

  5. In a large bowl, combine all of your ingredients. Toss well.

  6. Prepare your salad dressing in a small bowl on the side, and season to taste.

  7. Slowly pour dressing over the top of your salad, and toss it well before enjoying.

Final Thoughts

You can use this recipe for superfood salad to make your own dishes in the future; consider adding some other vegetables you love or switching up the toppings. A handful of cranberries and pecans, for example, can give this salad a great wintery taste.
