Power Kale Salad
This healthy Power Kale Salad is made with two different kinds of kale, blueberries, pears, goat cheese, and pecans, drenched in a sweet lemon dressing.
- 2/3 bunch purple kale stems removed & chopped
- 1 bunch green kale stems removed & chopped
- 8 ounces crumbled goat cheese I used with basil
- 1 1/2 cups blueberries
- 2 pears core removed and chopped
- 1 cup pecans chopped (optional, not pictured)
Sweet Lemon Dressing
- 2/3 fresh lemon juice
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoon honey
- 3 garlic cloves minced
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- pepper to taste optional
Make the lemon dressing by mixing together lemon juice, olive oil, honey, garlic, and salt in a small mason jar or bowl. Set in the fridge to chill until ready to serve.
Prepare kale by roughly chopping. To take some of the bitterness from the kale, gently squeeze the kale once you have chopped it.
Mix both of the kales together in a large salad or serving bowl.
Add blueberries and chopped pears into a small mixing bowl. Add ½ of the lemon dressing to the blueberries and pears and toss. Pour the blueberries and pears over the salad. Top with goat cheese and chopped pecans. Gently toss salad and serve immediately or set in the fridge for 1 hour before serving.
Serve with remaining dressing on the side, so each person can dress their own salad with additional dressing if desired.
This salad is best served when having chilled in the fridge for 1 hour.
