At last I’m posting this broccoli kale salad because I’ve been dying to share it with you.

I’ve been making (and eating) this salad so much the past few weeks, and it didn’t seem fair that I wasn’t sharing it with you yet.  

This is broccoli salad like no other!

As if you couldn’t tell. ๐Ÿ™‚

The inspiration for this broccoli kale salad recipe came from one that my sister-in-law brought over to my house one day.  It started with a broccoli slaw-kale mix with a sweet poppy seed dressing that she’d picked up at the store.  

The salad included feta cheese and sunflower seeds, and my sister-in-law added sliced fresh strawberries. 

The sweet strawberries took the salad to the next level and beyond, and everyone loved it, including me.

I state the obvious….because here I am with my own version. ๐Ÿ™‚

So thank you to my sister-in-law for this awesome salad idea, which morphed a few times into what you see before you.  

While I love incorporating broccoli slaw into my salads, I opted to use broccoli florets in this recipe.  If you love broccoli slaw, go ahead and use it! 

I highly recommend my Broccoli Slaw Salad and Kale Slaw Salad  recipes as well.

This salad is a superfood salad in every sense of the word.  It’s packed with nutritious superfoods as follows:

  • Broccoli
  • Kale (dinosaur or curly kale work fine)
  • Strawberries
  • Almonds
  • Red onion

The poppy seed dressing is healthier as well, as I’ve used 2% Greek yogurt instead of mayo. 

The dressing is nice and creamy, with tangy apple cider vinegar and sweetness from maple syrup.

How to make broccoli kale salad

This salad couldn’t be easier to make!  

  1. Place the kale, broccoli, strawberries, red onion, and feta cheese in large bowl.
  2. Place the Greek yogurt, vinegar, maple syrup, lemon juice, poppy seeds, salt and pepper to taste in a small bowl and whisk to combine.
  3. Pour the desired amount of dressing over the salad and toss to coat. Top with the chopped almonds, serve, and enjoy!

Recipe tips and substitutions

  • Use prepped broccoli florets and kale to save time.
  • The Greek yogurt poppy seed dressing may be made in advance.  Dressing will keep for one week in the fridge.
  • If strawberries aren’t in season, substitute with apples or dried cranberries.
  • Almonds may be substituted with sunflower seeds or pepitas for a nut free version.

Broccoli Kale Salad with Greek Yogurt Poppy Seed Dressing

Ingredients

For the salad:

  • 3 cups chopped kale (I used curly kale)
  • 1/2 lb. broccoli florets
  • 1 cup hulled, sliced strawberries
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped toasted almonds*

For the dressing:

  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt (I used 2%)
  • 4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup (may substitute with your favorite sweetener)

  • 1 teaspoon poppy seeds
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Place the kale, broccoli, strawberries, red onion, and feta cheese in large bowl.

Notes

  • I toasted whole almonds on a rimmed baking sheet at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, stirring halfway through. You may also use sliced almonds or pre-toasted slivered almonds to save time!
