Strawberry Kale Salad with Sliced Almonds…So Healthy and Good!

By Jodee Weiland

We were getting to ready to have Italian Basil Pesto with pasta, and I decided we needed a salad to go with the pasta. I had some kale in the crisper, so I decided to make it a kale salad.

This salad was really easy to put together for our meal.  I took the kale from our garden that I had stored in our refrigerator crisper and started to plan how I would put together my salad. I checked to see what I had in the refrigerator. I had fresh strawberries and some green onions from the garden. I, also, had some sliced almonds on hand. As a result, this is what I came up with for my salad.

    • Unfortunately, we are only able to grow our own produce from spring to fall, but we make the most of it. We freeze basil pesto and even, kale pesto, as well as stewed and fresh puree from tomatoes. As for kale, I have a dish I do with garlic and olive oil where I sauté the kale lightly. That’s good as well. Using kale in salads is delicious and especially, with fruit added. The biggest benefit is the healthy nutrients found in kale versus lettuce. If you try it, I’m sure you’ll like it. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Oh I love kale salad, but I’ve always massaged mine. I’ll have to try it without the massage the next time. I love the addition of the strawberries and almonds! A very tasty salad that would probable be a great side for a lot of entrees!

    • Strawberries and almonds truly make this salad taste so good. The sweet flavor of the strawberries is a great contrast for the kale. We have it as a side for many meals, but sometimes it’s great as a light meal just by itself. I like to keep the kale cleaned and ready in a lettuce crisper, so it’s fresh and crisp in the salad when I make it. Thanks for coming by!
