Kale and Feta Salad

"I've been making variations of this salad for years. I recently learned how to massage the kale and it makes a huge difference. I had a friend ask for my recipe and I realized I don't have one. This is my first attempt at writing a recipe, so please let me know how it works out! I like to change up the ingredients: sometimes a pear instead of an apple, cranberries instead of currants, Parmesan instead of feta, etc. Great as a side dish or by itself the next day for lunch!"

Thank you! I've always hated kale - too coarse-textured- but have eaten it because it's good for me. That massaging does the trick and the combination is very good.

This is delicious. Thanks for sharing the tip about massaging the kale. I have disliked eating kale for years because of its taste. I will like eating every week for years to come now. I cou...

I can see buying a lot more kale in my future! This was delicious! This was my first time preparing a raw kale dish. I use kale quite often in my raw juices, and I've had kale salad in restauran...

We're growing so much kale this year we are trying 2 new recipes a week. This is our favorite. So easy and refreshing and healthy! You won't even miss the lack of dressing, as the salt massage a...

loved to learn about massaging Kale, this was a bit salty, but I have since learned salt is not needed when massaging. A great recipe though.

Excellent salad; I could not believe how tender the kale became after "massaging" it. The dish was sweeter than saltier, despite the salt. I used raisins because I didn't have currants . . . but...
