Crunchy, fresh kale salad tossed with juicy strawberries, walnuts, blue cheese crumbles and homemade creamy poppyseed dressing!
6-8 cups chopped kale
1-2 cups 1-2 cups chopped romaine (optional, see note)
1 pound strawberries, stems removed and halved
1/4 cup whole or chopped walnuts (I used Diamond of California chopped walnuts)
1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles
2/3 cup mayo (see note)
1/2 cup Half & Half (I used fat free) or other milk (any percentage of milk will work- the higher the percentage, the creamier your dressing will be)
6 tablespoons sugar
8 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon oil
4 tablespoons poppyseeds
First prepare the dressing by blending all salad ingredients together (except for poppy seeds) until smooth. Stir in poppy seeds. Cover and chill until ready to use.
In a large bowl toss together kale, romaine (if using), and strawberries. Add poppyseed dressing and toss to coat. Top with nuts and blue cheese crumbles. Serve immediately (see notes).
