We like freshly chopped chives in this zippy, kale salad. Top with eggs, parsley, chives, and serve with creamy, buttermilk dressing.

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring water, sugar, 1/2 cup vinegar, and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt to a boil in a small saucepan over high. Boil, whisking until sugar and salt dissolve, about 1 minute. Remove from heat.

Step 2

Place onions and beets in a glass bowl; add vinegar mixture. Let stand at room temperature 1 hour. Drain and serve, or chill up to 2 weeks.

Step 3

Whisk together buttermilk, mayonnaise, and olive oil in a bowl until smooth. Whisk in parsley, chives, garlic, and remaining 1 tablespoon vinegar. Stir in pepper and remaining 3/4 teaspoon salt.

Step 4

Toss together kale, onion mixture, and 1/2 cup dressing. Top with eggs, parsley, chives, and croutons. Serve with remaining dressing.

Best Salad Ever!

I made this salad for my mother's birthday dinner because she loves kale and buttermilk. I couldn't believe how easy the recipe was! I didn't use the beet because my grocery didn't have any. I also used store bought croutons and the salad was still a hit! My mom, dad and brother couldn't stop eating it! This is a keeper!
