This simple kale salad is the perfect summer kale salad! Made with fresh cherries and an easy kale dressing, this salad can be made as a side dish or top with chicken or shrimp or grilled fish for a hearty meal.


Units Scale

1 T balsamic vinegar

1 T raspberry vinegar

1 1/2 t honey

3 T olive oil

Salt and fresh pepper to taste

1/2 t rosemary or mint

2 finely chopped green onions

10 pitted and sliced fresh cherries

1/4 c cubed or crumbled feta cheese

1/4 c sliced or chopped almonds

4 c baby kale


Make Vinaigrette:

In a small measuring cup, whisk together both vinegars, mustard and honey.

Whisk in olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

Assemble salad ingredients in a bowl.

Toss salad with about 2 T of dressing to start. Add more if you like it heavy with dressing.


Crumbled goat cheese or Boursin cheese is a great substitute for feta.

Sliced fresh apples, grapes, apricots, raspberries, etc. will also work in place of cherries.

Sherry vinegar is a great vinegar to try also, but you may need to add more honey because it tends to be tart.
