Wondering what goes into Besty's morning kale salad?
"Krazy for Kale Salad"
1 small head or 2 big handfuls of chopped kale (julienned or finely shredded)
1 ounce feta (chunks or shaved)*can substitute with ricotta salata
shallow handful craisins
1/2 a bell pepper chopped
3 inch chunk of seedless cucumber, quartered lengthwise and chopped
zest and juice from 1/2 lemon
1 tablespoon of oil (tops!)
salt & pepper to taste
Toss it all together and give it a few minutes to a few hours for the flavors to meld. Unbelievably good! It also travels well.
Note: toasted almonds, pine nuts or hazelnuts can replace the cheese.
