Chopped Greek Kale Salad with a healthy homemade Greek dressing you'll want to put on everything!

Hellooooo gorgeous!

As I’m sure you know by now, I’m hopelessly kale-obsessed. Since hopping back on the bandwagon this year, I’ve been keeping a freshly chopped + massaged bag of kale in my crisper at all times.

It comes in handy when I want a snack (kale chips!) or breakfast (quiche!!!) and, of course, whenever a craving for a mondo salad strikes!

I’ve also been riding a serious cucumber kick as I’m sure most of you have noticed from my past few WIAW posts! They’re essentially a love letter to cukes. Can you blame me though? They’re delicious!

Much like my beloved kale, I’ve been eating them non-stop!

  4. Whisk together dressing and pour desired amount on salad, toss to coat.

Who knew a salad could make you drool?! Yum! I saw that crisper and was curious how well it worked, thanks for the review!

Juli @1000lovelythings

It’s so rare to get fresh kale here. And if it costs an arm and a leg :-/
I am so looking forward to fresh watermelon. It’s not quite in season here but I can hardly wait anymore!

Ashley @ A Lady Goes West

Hi Jenn! So cool you’re moving back to Florida, by the way! I’m in Florida right now visiting family. I grew up here and moved to San Francisco three years ago. Thanks for hosting the party today! Three cheers for kale!

Michele @ paleorunningmomma

This is very timely since I was just collecting a bunch of summer salad recipes! The dressing looks too good.

Alyssa @ Renaissancerunnergirl

I’ve been on a huge cucumber kick lately too. Maybe because of the warmer weather, they’re so crisp and refreshing!

Kate @ Kate Lives Healthy

What a great summer salad! I am intrigued by the Oxo containers. I have seen tons of those types of containers with the promise of keeping things fresh but was always skeptical. I might have to have a look for those ones to have on hand. I buy mini cukes at Costco when I feel like a change from the usual cukes. I then seem to constantly grab one from the fridge for a cool snack! Thanks for hosting another WIAW party 🙂

Lauren @ The Bikini Experiment

Kale has my heart for sure. So excited for you that you are moving back to Florida! Thanks so much for this salad recipe and hosting the link up this week!!

Angela @ HonestlyAngela

That salad looks beautiful. Feta cheese is pretty much a requirement for me when it comes to salad – I will have to try your recipe!

Melissa

Oooh that greek salad looks soooo good! I’m game for anything with feta and avocado. Yum! AND I never would’ve thought of kale – but that sounds great too!

Maria

Where can I get this box of refrigerator wizardry you speak of? My cukes are probably dying a terrible mushy death as I type.

christina

good lord, you make a girl crave feta cheese….thanks! haha

    Jenn

    Haha payback 😉 Mwah!

Jana @ Happy Wife Healthy Life

That chopped Greek kale salad looks delicious! Greek salads are my absolute favorite, and I think one of the hardest things about pregnancy is having to pass on the feta cheese. I love me some feta!

    Jenn

    As long as it’s pasteurized it’s super safe to eat [from what I remember!] – If you buy it yourself and know the brand is a reputable source you should be able to feta it up lady! Double-check but I’m almost certain you can — I did some research and was able to enjoy it throughout my pregnancy!

Kelly @ The Fit Skool

that salad looks so refreshing & delicious and I really want to try that dressing too, I love that it’s so simple!

    Jenn

    It’s ridiculously easy! You’ve got to try it!

Will @ TeelFit

That salad looks SOOO good!! I love me some avocado!!!

Amy @ Amy M4gic

I’ve been on a mini cucumber kick lately, too. I just learned that you can put sliced cucumbers into a jar of pickle juice (once all the pickles have been eaten) to make more pickles! I’m sure I’m the last person on earth to figure that one out, but I’m very excited to try it. Pickle nerd over here!

    Jenn

    Yesssss! Fridge pickles! I have a recipe for making them from scratch too when you can’t wait for a free jar-o-pickle juice! It’s marvelous!

Ashley Tukiainen

Jenn, that salad looks AMAZING! You’re a girl after my own heart 🙂

Heather @ Life In Leggings

OH my gosh, that salad looks amazing. I need it, like yesterday. K, thanks. 🙂

amanda @ fake ginger

I need that container! I always buy way more veggies than we can eat before they go bad. The salad looks great! I’ve been craving salads so much lately.

AJ @ NutriFitMama

This salad looks absolutely delicious! I will definitely be making this in the near future 🙂 Perfect for summer!
