Kale Salad with Oranges, Blueberries, Red Onions and Olives

Kale Salad with Oranges, Blueberries, Red Onions and Olives // wishfulchef.comEver since we moved back to the East Coast, I’ve been appreciating the seasons more and with Spring just around the corner, I get excited to try out different salads. I love the addition of fresh fruit to salads and this particular mix of ingredients is a must try. I combined sweet oranges and blueberries with sliced red onions and olives on a bed of kale leaves. The flavors were truly outstanding.

Packed with bold flavor and vibrant colors, it’s the perfect salad to serve at a party along with some fancy BLT’s. For a bit more crunch, add a sprinkle of toasted pine nuts on top.
