Summer Berry Kale Salad ☀

Summer Berry Kale Salad

If you’re looking for the perfect summer salad, THIS is it! This Summer Berry Kale Salad includes perfectly ripe summer berries AND sweet mangoes for a mouthwatering salad that will refresh your taste buds!

If you saw my Shrimp Mango Summer Rolls last week, you’ll know that I LOVE mango season! And with mangoes on sale at Whole Foods this week, I had to pick up some more for another summer dish for you!

Summer is my all time favorite time of year because I literally am a fruit addict…and because I eat very seasonally, I get very sad during the winter months without all my fruit options. (Luckily, I have found some great winter produce to hold me over…)

Summer Berry Kale Salad

I adapted this recipe from my friend Les, over at The Balanced Berry. I took out the peaches because, well, they aren’t exactly ripe yet in my neck of the woods (Minnesota…), but I did add one of my all time favorite ingredients…shredded coconut!

If you haven’t tried coconut on your salads yet, let me tell you…DO IT! Coconut adds such a different taste to salads and is the perfect addition to seasonal summer salads.

This salad is so simple and only takes a few minutes to throw together. The secret to perfect kale salads is to shred the kale and massage it for a few minutes to tenderize it and allow the dressing to soak in. Then dice up a few berries and toss it all together. BANG, a beautiful, tropical salad for a sunny summer day! ☀

  1. Such a pretty salad! I’m totally with you, I’m obsessed with fruit… I was just talking about it on my blog the other day actually! Lately when I go food shopping my fruit basket and refrigerator drawers are packed and busting open, then a few days later I’m like, “Well did all of my produce go?!!” Ha!
