EASY KALE SUMMER SALAD

Do you love summer salads?  My husband and I often enjoy a large salad for dinner on a hot summer night. This is our new healthy favorite.

Kale, Chickpea and Feta cheese salad

Ingredient List

1 bunch Kale, washed & dried or a package of chopped Kale

1 can chick peas, rinsed and drained

¾ cup light Feta Cheese crumbled

½ medium red onion diced

Additional vegetables of your choice, diced

 

Dressing

2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon of honey

1 teaspoon of mustard

¼ cup of olive oil

½ teaspoon of garlic pepper

If you have a large package of kale you may need to double this dressing recipe.

Method

Pour ½ the dressing over the kale and mix well with your nice clean hands. Rub the dressing onto the leaves. I know it’s pretty messy but the kale needs to be well coated.

Then add the rest of the kale and the remaining dressing. Mix well with your hands.
