Equipment

  • large bowl
  • colander
  • slicing tool
  • measuring spoon
  • measuring cup
  • citrus juicer

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch Kale
  • 2 Apples
  • 3 T Avocado Oil
  • 1 t Salt
  • 1 t Pepper
  • 6 ounces Feta Cheese Crumbled
  • 1/2 C Pumpkin Seeds Salted

Instructions

  • Wash the kale and apples well and dry off.
    Tear off the kale leaves from the stems into bite size pieces and place in your large bowl.
    With washed hands, rub the kale until the leaves darken - this takes a few minutes but it's worth the effort. (Remember I said my description of kale is scratchy?)
    You can slice or julienne the apples (use whatever tool you have) and add to the large bowl.
    In a small bowl, mix your avocado oil, lemon juice (squeezed fresh or you can use the bottled), salt & pepper until well mixed.
    Drizzle over the kale and apples. Toss to coat everything.
    Add the feta cheese and pumpkin seeds and toss again.

Notes

 
This is even good the next day as the flavors meld together even better! If you like, you can add some fresh tomato, or keep it fall themed and add a few dried cranberries. (This adds sugar to the mix, so I didn't.
Make it meal  - Add some oven baked bacon just before serving.
This could be 8 small servings or 2 large servings depending on if you are eating it as a meal or as a side dish. 
PS. Before you ask - I don't do nutritional information. There are plenty of calculators available nowadays if that is important to you. I don't want to bog myself down with all that, this is about being healthy and ENJOYING life, not tracking myself to death.
I am not really a recipe blogger - but if I make one that is good, I will share it. I also find recipes and I adapt them to our personal needs so there may be similar recipes available out there, but this one is my own using ingredients I had on hand.
