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
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
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.
Combine ingredients of the dressing in order and mix well with a whisk. Set aside for later.
Rinse the chickpeas under cold water and let sit to drain.
Dice the red onion. I chose red and yellow peppers as others vegetables. Set aside for later.
Prepare kale and place ½ in a large bowl.
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.
Then add the chickpeas and veggies. Mix well with a spoon this time.
Add ½ the feta cheese and mix well. Then add the remainder of the feta cheese and mix well.
Refrigerate until ready to serve-preferably 1 hour.
Enjoy as a side salad or alone!
