Kale and Craisin Salad with Feta

IMG_1076

Ingredients

1 bunch of kale

Shredded Rotisserie Chicken [1-2 cups]

3/4 t sea salt

1/4 cup finely diced red onion

1/2 cup dried cranberries/craisins

3/4 cup small-diced apple

1/3 cup toasted sunflower seeds or walnuts

1/4 cup olive oil

2 T red wine vinegar

1/2 t stevia

1/3 cup crumbled Feta Cheese

Directions

Wash the kale and pat it dry. Slice off the stiff stems below the leaves and continue slicing the stem away from the leaf until you have cut a thin v-shape into the kale leaf and removed the tough stem all the way up. Stack the kale leaves two or three at a time, roll them up, and slice the leaves into thin ribbons.

Place the kale ribbons in a large mixing bowl. Add the salt and massage it into the kale with your hands for two minutes. You’ll notice the kale start to turn a darker green and the texture of the kale will begin to soften a bit.

Toss in the red onions, craisins, apples, and sunflower seeds. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar and sugar. Pour over the salad and toss. Sprinkle fret cheese over the top and serve. The salad can refrigerated for up to a day before serving [if doing this, I would suggest refrigerating the salted kale separately from the other ingredients and tossing the salad together an hour or two before serving]
