  • Method: No-Cook




  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  • 1 large head kale, stems removed and thinly sliced
  • 1-pound strawberries, trimmed and halved
  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts or pecans, toasted


  1. In a small bowl or jar, whisk or shake together the dressing ingredients until combined. Taste and adjust seasoning, if necessary.
  2. Place the kale in a large bowl and toss with half of the dressing. Use your hands to massage the kale until it’s slightly broken down.
  3. Distribute the kale to plates or bowls and top with strawberries, feta and toasted walnuts. Drizzle each with the remaining dressing. Serve.


Cooking Tip: Massaging the kale with the dressing or olive oil breaks it down a bit so it’s a more pleasurable eating experience. It takes the bitterness away from the kale and makes it easier to chew.

Substitution Tip: Swap kale for fresh spinach.
