Grape & Feta Kale Salad

This fresh kale salad combines sweet and salty to create a delicious dish that is sure to impress just about anyone!  The Grape and Feta Kale salad is the perfect addition to your next BBQ on the patio.  Adding new recipes to your repertoire boosts cooking confidence so that you do not fear failure.  I’d like to share one of my favourite quotes by Julia Child, “The only real stumbling block is fear of failure. In cooking you’ve got to have a what-the-hell attitude.”

 

Serves: 2

Prep time: 10 minutes

 

Ingredients:

4 cups kale, stems removed & chopped

1 cup red seedless grapes, cut in half

1/3 cup feta cheese, crumbled

3 Tbsp unsalted sunflower seeds

3 Tbsp raisins

2 Tbsp olive oil

1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

pinch of salt if needed

Tip: I added Tbsp of orange juice into salad for added zing!

 

Instructions:

  • Cut off stems and the tough middle pieces on kale. Chop into bite size pieces. Clean kale leaves and dry in a salad spinner.
  • In a large salad bowl place kale leaves, grapes, feta, sunflower seeds, and raisins.
  • Drizzle oil and balsamic vinegar over salad and toppings. Toss salad to combine ingredients. You want the kale leaves to be coated lightly.
  • Finish with squeeze of extra orange juice from orange peel.

 

Kitchen tip: Always taste your foods during cooking and especially before serving!  This way you can add more of something to suit your taste. You might find you prefer more oil or vinegar in this salad.
