Kale Salad with Oranges, Blueberries, Red Onions and Olives

Kale SaladEver since we moved back to the East Coast, I’ve been appreciating the seasons more and with Spring just around the corner, I get excited to try out different salads. I love the addition of fresh fruit to salads and this particular mix of ingredients is a must try. I combined sweet oranges and blueberries with sliced red onions and olives on a bed of kale leaves. The flavors were truly outstanding.

Packed with bold flavor and vibrant colors, it’s the perfect salad to serve at a party along with some fancy BLT’s. For a bit more crunch, add a sprinkle of toasted pine nuts on top.

Slice oranges & onion, then toss kale leaves & olives into a large bowl with dressing.

Kale and Orange Salad Recipe

  • kale leaves
  • 2 oranges, peeled and sliced into segments
  • a handful of blueberries
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup kalamata olives, pitted
  • 3-4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1-2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • salt and pepper, to taste

    Using a sharp knife, remove the peel and white pith from the oranges. Then slice out segments, discarding the seeds and white membrane. Set aside.

    In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, lemon juice, honey, salt and pepper for the dressing. Then place kale leaves and olives in a large bowl and toss with about 3/4 of the dressing.

    Place kale leaves and olives onto a serving platter. Top with oranges, sliced onions and blueberries, then pour remaining dressing over top.
