Summer Kale Salad

This was a really refreshing salad that you can really make your own by adding whatever fruit you have on hand.  


  • 1 large bunch of kale, chopped
  • 1 cup strawberries, sliced
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 1 diced peach or nectarine
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • 1/2 cup diced mango
  • 3 tbsp dried cranberries or dried cherries
  • 1/4 cup toasted almonds
  • 1/4 cup toasted walnut halves


  • 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste


Mix ingredients for dressing in a small bowl.  

Place chopped kale in a large bowl and pour half of the dressing over the kale, massaging it for a minute to help soften the kale.  

Add fruit and nuts and remaining dressing, toss and serve.
