  • 7 oz (200 gr.) very finely chopped kale (make sure you only use the leaves that are stripped of the stems )
  • 3.5 oz (100 gr.) slices of bacon
  • 4-5 dried figs
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp. agave syrup or acacia honey
  • 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Optional! Fried eggs


  1. Start by making the dressing.
  2. Mix the olive oil with Dijon mustard, agave syrup and vinegar. Pour it over the the finely chopped kale and mix well.
  3. Place the bacon slices on a baking sheet with baking paper and bake them in the oven until they are nice and crisp. Put the crispy slices onto a piece of paper towel to absorb some of the excess fat. Cut it afterwards into very small pieces.
  4. Chop the figs coarsely.
  5. Mix the chopped bacon and figs with the kale salad and serve the salad as a side dish to meat or even for breakfast with a fried egg on top. It's really, really good!
