Kale and Feta Salad

Ok, I haven't shared many recipes, and I will probably get around to it someday, but when I realized that I had eaten this particular dish twice this week (it's Monday), all by myself because Dan is gone and I haven't convinced my children of the incredible goodness that is kale - which means I ate two large bunches of kale with no problem - I realized I should probably share. I heard about it from my college roommate, Mary, who posted about it on her blog. The original called for ricotta salata, but since I had to look that up to figure out what it was, I decided to use the feta I had in my fridge. It was delicious. Here is my version...

1 bunch kale (called for lacinato - I used what they had at market, which I think was called Blue)
2 TBS shallots
1 1/2 TBS lemon juice
4 TBS olive oil
2 ounces feta

wash and de-stem the kale. cut into strips, crosswise.
combine the shallots and lemon juice, then whisk as you add the olive oil.
toss kale with dressing and add the feta.
voila. eat the whole thing.
or don't - I put a small portion on a pizza that I made with roasted beets. OH LORDY, yum.

I love this so much too! Its been so cold I am wanting stew more than salad but that is why I have grown to so love kale. Works either way.

I loved your clothes pin idea too. Tomorrow. Pretty string and clothes pins are on the list.

You really are an inspiration.

I'm always looking for ways to do up kale.
