AAA Kale Salad

AAA Kale Salad......strange name for a salad, don't you think?  Well, the name comes from it being Aromatic, Appealing and Awesome.

Kale is being called “the new beef”, “the queen of greens” and “a nutritional powerhouse.” So it makes sense to add it to our meals whenever possible.

I know there are those of you who don't find Kale particularly tasty and sometimes find the leaves to be a bit tough.  However, this salad should dispel your hesitation to try kale.

 I suggest making this salad the day before you'll serve it.  The salad greens will not go limp and will better absorb the delicious taste of the salad dressing if you do.

AAA Kale Salad
1 bag of mixed Kale salad greens (I got mine at Trader Joe's...Kale,
Brussel Sprouts, Broccoli and Cabbage)
1 5 ounce container of crumbled feta cheese
1/2 cup pecan pieces
1/2 cup dried cranberries or craisins or raisins
1/4 cup Joe and Son's Mushroom/Sage Olive Oil
1/4 cup Joe and Son's Mission Fig Balsamic Vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
 Pour  the Oil and Vinegar into a tight sealing jar or cruet and shake well until combined.
In a large serving bowl or storage bowl, place the greens, pecans, cheese and craisins. Pour the dressing over the greens and toss.  Salt and pepper to taste.
If you are refrigerating this overnight, seal the storage bowl before placing in the refrigerator.
Serve cold..4-6 servings
