This salad is a quick and easy side to any meal. You can choose any greens that suit your palate however, if you are looking for a lower-potassium salad, we recommend this salad just as written. Arugula and kale are lower potassium options and can add a lot of great taste! Just add your favorite salad dressing (we like our lemon garlic vinaigrette dressing with this salad best)
Chop kale, cucumber, red bell pepper and red onion
1/2 cup Kale
1/2 cup Cucumber
1/2 cup Red bell pepper
1/4 cup Red onion
Add veggies and pumpkin seeds to bowl.
1 tbsp Sunflower seeds
Add your favorite low sodium dressing and enjoy!
This simple salad can be altered to meet your taste. Swap out specific veggies based on what you have in your kitchen or your potassium needs. The veggies and greens were chosen because they are low in potassium.

Founder & Director Anthony Valentine graduated from the University of New Hampshire with a degree in Culinary Arts & Nutrition in 2013. He was later diagnosed with IGA Nephropathy (IGAN) in April 2017. On January 31st, 2019, he received a new kidney from his mother. Post-transplant life will never be the same, and neither will his diet. So, combining his diagnosis of IGAN with his degree in culinary arts and nutrition, he created Cukebook.org. Cukebook is a website that documents recipes, guides, tools, and resources designed to help people fighting chronic kidney disease.
