I love the combination of fresh kale leaves and blueberries in addition to other nutritious ingredients. They actually gave this salad a perfect taste!
Kale: Blueberry salad can never be complete without this superstar vegetable that is rich in nutrients. The kale leaves need to be massaged before combining it with the other ingredients for this salad. Massaging the kale for just 2 minutes will help to soften the leaves. The leaves can be massaged with or without olive oil using clean hands by rubbing the leaves with hands for about 2 minutes.
Pomegranate: This precious red fruit that is rich in antioxidants is special and I added just the seeds after removing the thick reddish skin. The seeds are rich in fiber so adding it to your salad is optional but a good way to incorporate more nutrient to you salad. To remove the seeds can be messy but you can remove the seeds simply by cutting the fruit in half and facing it down on a bowl filled with water while tapping it with a wooden spoon. Squeeze gently to extract the seeds directly into water.
