Massaged Kale and Craisin Salad with Feta Cheese

The only thing I have in my winter garden right now is kale, and it is thriving. This salad is such a yummy way to use up the kale.  I love it!!

Massaged Kale and Craisin Salad with Feta Cheese

1 bunch kale
3/4 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
1/4 cup finely diced red onion
1/2 cup craisins
3/4 cup small diced apple
1/3 cup toasted sunflower seeds
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/3 cup crumbled Feta cheese

1.  Wash the kale and pat it dry.  Slice off the stiff stems below and in the middle of the kale leaves.  This should create a thin "V" in the middle of your leaf.  You want to remove all the stiff stem.  Slice the remaining kale leaves into thin strips.
2.  Place the kale ribbons in a large mixing bowl.  Add the salt and massage it into the kale with your hands for about two minutes.
3.  Toss in the red onions, craisins, apples, sunflower seeds.  In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, and sugar.  Pour over the salad and toss.  Sprinkle Feta cheese over the top and serve.  This salad holds quite well overnight too.  Don't be afraid of saving it for leftovers.

Serves: 6
