Kale, Salami, and Roasted Garbanzo Bean Salad

I have partnered in a compensated campaign with Cans Get You Cooking.


Kale Salami and Roasted Garbanzo Bean Salad


Did you know that canned foods are great to use along with fresh foods? There are plenty of nutrients packed into canned fruits, vegetables, and more, so get cooking with cans! It’s convenient, affordable, and best of all, healthy.


Today I am sharing one of my favorite salad recipes using fresh kale, salami and canned garbanzo beans. If you are a salad fan, this is a can’t miss meal!


Kale, Salami, and Roasted Garbanzo Bean Salad



  • 2 cups fresh kale, diced
  • 15 slices Italian dry salami
  • 1 handful cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup S&W canned garbanzo beans
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil marinade* or Italian dressing


Kale, Salami and Roasted Garbanzo Bean Salad


This is a pretty simple salad, start by roasting the garbanzo beans. Take a shallow baking dish, coat the beans with olive oil and sprinkle a little salt. Roast for about 15 minutes or until crispy, stir occasionally.


Combine the kale, salami, parmesan, garbanzo beans and dressing in a mixing bowl.  Toss until thoroughly mixed, then serve topped with a few cherry tomatoes. Garlic bread goes great with this salad, so delicious!


*If you are looking to make an olive oil marinade, combine fresh minced garlic, Italian seasonings, salt, pepper, and a splash of balsamic vinaigrette with a cup of olive oil and let it sit over night. Yes, you’ll have to do this ahead of time, but it’s so worth it!

  • Interesting combination. Whenever I eat kale, I steam it. Seems like this would have a strong flavor with the salami. I like the recipe and will make it soon…adding to my Pinterst list
