Superfood crunchy kale and blueberry salad with raspberries, radishes, cabbage, carrots, and vegan buttermilk salad dressing. A great salad option for summer barbecues and picnics!
When it’s too hot to think… when you need a break from less-than-stellar food (and/or alcohol) decisions… when you’re in the mood for something cold, crunchy, and green…THIS!
There’s something about a simple, seasonal, goody-packed salad that really sings to my heartstrings. While I’m all about those filling, comforting meals, sometimes there’s nothing more satisfying than a light and cleansing lunch or dinner… which is where this vibrant beauty comes into play.
I was telling you about this salad yesterday in my Vegan Buttermilk Salad Dressing post. I really can’t take credit for this particular recipe, as it comes straight out of Southern Living’s Kale & Blueberry Slaw with Buttermilk Dressing recipe. They call it a slaw…I call it a salad. We cool with that? We coo.
My favorite part about this recipe, other than the fact that it’s jam packed with nutritious crunchy, poppy, juicy goodies, is it saves super well! You can make it ahead of time and enjoy it at a picnic/BBQ, or make it in bulk for work lunches.
Simply put everything in a uuuuuuge bowl and toss in your desired amount of Vegan Buttermilk Salad Dressing. I didn’t use all of the dressing for this recipe, so you’ll likely end up with some leftover, which you can put toward other saladly endeavors.
What are you up to this weekend? I’ll be mountain biking, laying in the sun, sipping on wine, eating on burritos, and munching on kale to balance out said wine and burritos. I hope you have a fun and relaxing two days off!
