Kale me crazy…but this is probably one of my favorite salads EVER. The flavor combo is to die for and it has the perfect crunchiness and sweetness! I know many of us are tired of hearing about kale in the media and how it reaps so many health benefits, but it’s true. Kale is loaded with antioxidant vitamins A, K, and C and is a good source of essential minerals such as potassium, copper, iron, and phosphorus. To top it off, just one cup of this super food is only about 40 calories. woo-hoo!
Kale and Blueberry Spring Salad
The BEST kale salad you'll ever make. Salty, sweet and it has the perfect crunch.
- 1 cup bulgar
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 8 oz. package sugar snap peas
- 4 cups kale, roughly chopped
- 2 cups blueberries, fresh
- 1/2 cup pecans
- 3/5 cup feta cheese
- 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
- 1 shallot, chopped small
- 2/3 cup olive oil
- 2 Tbsp. honey
- 2 tsp. Dijon mustard
For the dressing: Whisk together red wine vinegar and minced shallot. Whisk in olive oil and remaining ingredients. Add salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate in an airtight container up to 1 week.
Cook bulgar according to package. Set aside to cool.
Then cook snap peas in boiling salted water for 2 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Plunge into ice water; drain and pat dry. Slice in half or leave them whole.
Toss together kale, bulgar, and 1/4 cup vinaigrette in a large bowl. Let stand 30 minutes to let the kale marinate. Stir in blueberries, pecans, and sugar snap peas. Add salt and pepper. Sprinkle with cheese. Serve with remaining vinaigrette.

I love everything going on in this salad from the feta cheese to the bulgar and I hope you do too!. Other grain substitutions for the salad could be quinoa, wheat berries, farro, or wild rice. I am a big fan of Southern Living Magazine and I adapted the recipe from there. I encourage you all to browse the rest of my blog for more healthy (mostly) recipes!
