We're thinking of retitling our blog "Another Kale Salad". We're always looking for delicious ways to bring more leafy greens into our diet, and this salad, if we do say so ourselves, is a home run. We copy catted it from a version we got at a local deli and are really happy with how it turned out.
Its only downfall is the chopping. We're so dog tired of cutting things up that we're considering bringing out our vegetable chopper, one that we put away years ago in favor of a nice knife that's supposed to be super sharp but rarely is.
Anyhoo, when you're in the mood for some whole foods and can't find pre-cut bagged lettuce in the fridge, give this a shot. It serves quite a few and goes over well at a party.

Here's what you need and how you do it
1-2 heads of kale, washed and thick spines removed, sliced into strips
1/2 tart apple such as fuji or braeburn (we hate fruit in green salads so opted to replace the apple with jicima)
1/2 cup feta cheese
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
2 carrots, cut in half and sliced thinly
1/2 cup red onion, chopped
1/3 cup olive oil
3 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon honey or agave nectar
1 Tablespoon dijon mustard
Salt and pepper to taste
Toss together and serve.
