Kale Salad with Berry Dressing

Eating green leafy vegetables is crucial.  Eating some raw vegetables is also important.  This salad combines both.  Many restaurants are serving kale salads like this.  We make it a point to eat this before dinner once a week.


One bunch of kale, rinsed thoroughly and chopped finely

One small onion, finely chopped

1/4 cup raw chopped walnuts, lightly toasted (optional)

Two large strawberries, crushed

Handful of raspberries or blackberries, crushed

1/3-½ cup of red wine vinegar



two pitted dates, chopped


In a blender, puree the berries, vinegar, , and dates.  In a large salad bowl, place the kale, walnuts, and onions.   Toss with the dressing.  Add salt and pepper to taste.
