Just a side note: I told my husband a few days ago that I was craving a kale salad. He seemed to think that the words crave and kale don't go together as well as maybe crave and potato chips. I guess I see his point, but this so called craving came back in full force after I had eaten my weight in Chex muddy buddies on New Year’s Eve.
Kale, Orange and Feta Salad with Honey-Lime Dressing
1 bunch kale, washed, stems removed and leaves shredded of finely chopped
1 avocado, thinly sliced
1 pomegranate, arils removed
3 oranges, peeled and sliced into rounds
5 radishes, thinly sliced
Handful fresh cilantro, chopped
1/3 cup crumbled feta
1/4 cup pepitas, toasted
3 tablespoon fresh lime juice (about 2 small limes)
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium jalapeno, membranes and seeds removes, minced
2 teaspoons honey
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
Dressing: Whisk all ingredients in a small bowl or place ingredients in a small glass jar with a lid and give it a good shake. Set aside.
Place shredded kale in a large salad bowl and sprinkle with a pinch of salt and massaged the leaves with your hands until the leaves are darker in color and fragrant.
Drizzle salad dressing over the kale (you may not need all of the dressing) and toss well to lightly coat the kale. Add the avocado, pomegranate, oranges, radishes, cilantro, feta and pepitas to the bowl. Toss the salad gently to combine and serve.
