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!

I have been trying to incorporate more dark, leafy greens into my diet but have been fighting with kale's toughness and bitterness. I had no idea that a two minute salt massage could make such a HUGE difference. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, Leslie for this fabulous recipe and especially for the priceless tip tucked inside!

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.

Pretty delicious! I wasn't sure what "massaging" meant- so I just put a bunch in a large bowl and started kneading it lightly with my fingers. After about a minute it started to wilt and release a bit of its liquid. At 2 minutes it had decreased in volume by almost half and was looking tasty. I substituted walnuts for pine nuts and cranberries for currants based on what I had in my fridge. I also added a tablespoon of olive oil. Very versatile.
