Berry and Bacon Kale Salad with Blackberry Jam Vinaigrette


Recipe: Berry and Bacon Kale Salad with Blackberry Jam Vinaigrette

Summary: How do you feel about kale? Are you a big fan like me… or do you still need some convincing? For me, a good kale salad is a treat indeed.  Here’s a great salad that showcases this wonderful green. Kale is a little different than lettuce. Lettuce can be drizzled with salad dressing and it’s good to go.  Kale leaves are tougher, so they need a little tender-loving care when utilized for salad.  I like to cut the leaves into small pieces or shreds, and toss them with the salad dressing.  Then let them marinate in the dressing for about 20 minutes before you add in the other ingredients.


    • Vinaigrette:
    • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon whole grain Dijon mustard
    • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon seedless blackberry jam
    • Salad:
    • 5 to 6 cups chopped kale, ribs removed and just leaves chopped or cut into shreds)
    • 3 to 5 slices of bacon (depending on your bacon craving), cooked and crumbled
    • One handful of raspberries or chopped strawberries (about 2/3 cup)
    • One handful of blackberries or blueberries (about 2/3 cup)
    • 1/3 cup crumbled feta or goat cheese
