Loaded with autumny fruits, vitamin-rich kale, and food of the Gods: perga, then dressed with a balsamic blanc vinaigrette, is truly a nutritional powerhouse. If you want to make it vegan, use cashews or other nuts in place of perga.
Perga, also called bee bread or ambrosia, is fermented bee pollen which happens when the bees add their saliva to the pollen and retains its hexagonal honeycomb shape after it is taken out. It has a mild, sweet-sour taste and rich in protein and minerals.

  • 120 g Kale leaves, chopped
  • 2 Pears, thinly sliced
  • 2-3 Figs, cut into wedges
  • Pomegranate seeds
  • 1 tbsp Perga bee bread or roasted cashews
  • 4 tbsp Balsamic blanc
  • 60 ml Olive oil
  • 1 tsp Garlic-infused honey
  • 2 tsp Black cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp Dried tarragon leaves
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. In the mason jar, add the balsamic blanc, olive oil, garlic-infused honey, black cumin seeds and dried tarragon. Twist the cap, and shake again until everything has emulsified. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until ready for use.
  2. Wash and chop the kale. Dry kale in a salad spinner. Arrange them in a salad platter. Add sliced pears, fig wedges, pomegranate seeds and perga or roasted cashew nuts if your want to make this vegan.
  3. Toss with the prepared dressing and serve.

Honestly, I learn about more things when I visit you, Angie! I had never heard of Perga Bee before so had to Google it. It sounds so good and a wonderful addition to your gorgeous salad. It's hard to find really good figs here :(

i've never heard of perga or bee pollen, and i've certainly never tasted it! what an interesting salad component!

Nava K 8/10/17 08:43

Colours in this salad speaks loudly on how we should keep colorful and healthy at the same time.

Oh wow! this is one gorgeous plate!. hubby is heading to Cyprus soon, have told him he has to try and bring me some fresh figs as they are so expensive over here, just hope they don't end squashed in his bag LOL.

Liz Berg 8/10/17 19:25

Such a beautiful autumnal salad, Angie! And adding perga (thanks for explaining what that is!) makes it such a gourmet dish!

I seriously eat Kale everyday, I crave it, it’s so tasty and healthy for you, I’m pretty sure my body loves it also. I’ve never roasted cashews, I'm going to make this salad sometime next week. You always open mind and tastebuds to new things. Have a great week my friend.

This is such a lovely salad. I'm a huge fan of figs and could eat them constantly. Sadly they're no longer in season here or at least I haven't seen them. Beautiful salad and so healthy!
