I love easy salads because I often have a salad with my meal and so I don’t want it to be a hassle to make. Salads are such a simple way to get more vegetables into your diet so give this salad a try as it could be a regular addition to your meals.
Plus this kale blueberry salad recipe is Paleo, ketogenic-friendly, and autoimmune-friendly (AIP), so you can enjoy this recipe whichever diet you’re on!
If you don’t have kale handy, then choose your favorite salad leaves instead. And for the salad dressing, you can use a simple one like olive oil and lemon juice.
Salad Recipe Ingredients:
- Kale – You’ve probably heard that kale is supposed to be good for you, but just 1 serving of this salad gives you over 134% of vitamin C, 206% of vitamin A (from beta-carotene), and 684% of vitamin K!
- Blueberries – And by adding some blueberries to this recipe, you get a touch of sweetness in the salad without too many extra carbohydrates to keep this salad Keto and low carb. Blueberries add in some extra nutrition (including more vitamin C and vitamin K). Blueberries are also full of antioxidants and could help reduce DNA damage.
- Sliced Almonds or Coconut Flakes – Add in some sliced almonds [or coconut flakes if you’re on the Paleo autoimmune protocol (AIP)] to add in extra crunch to this salad recipe.
- Extra Flavorings – I also added in some red onion and parsley for extra flavoring.
- Easy Salad Dressing – For the salad dressing, I went for something really easy – lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, and salt/pepper. This way you can taste all the delicious ingredients in the salad.
