Kale cranberry feta cheese salad

I have been making this kale cranberry feta cheese salad for the past two weeks. I think I have probably made it four times already I am so in love it.

The first time I tried something like this was at my friends house about 4 weeks ago. She actually bought the salad from a new deli shop here in town. The salad was quite costly in my opinion but very good nonetheless. I thought the salad was quite simple so recreating it making it with my own homemade salad dressing shouldn’t be too hard.

So a few weeks later I got to make it using my mustard salad dressing vinaigrette and oh boy… I have been making this kale cranberry feta cheese salad at least twice a week. Even my kids love it!

The best way to eat this salad is a few minutes after making it when the dressing has been softening the kale for a while. I normally make the salad in advance and let it sit for 20 minutes for the vinaigrette to do its thing with the kale. I have let it sit for longer time as well as refrigerate leftovers and still the salad is perfectly fine.

On another note, I am so panicing about the holidays been so near. I don’t know where time is going but for sure it is flying by. I am planing of making at least a couple of holiday cookie recipes soon so stay tuned for that. I am also still debating whether or not I am going to be gifting homemade goodies to friends and family this year. It is so much work. I know they will appreciate them… will see.

Anyhow, I hope you get to make this kale cranberry feta cheese salad. If you like kale you are going to love this recipe.

  1. I made lots of kale salads last days…not my husband’s favourite, but he finished what I put on his dinner plate without complaints. Love yours with cranberry and feta!

  2. I have been following you and making your recipes for a long time, so when I heard your voice on the video I felt like I was listening to and watching an old friend! Thank you for all your delicious recipes!

  3. This is something I would have no issues eating! I was thinking the other day how I wanted a new salad, but all of my recipes seem too sweet. I like the idea of using feta for saltiness (so going out to get me some kale!)

  4. This is one of my favorite ways to have a kale salad!

  5. This looks so fresh and delightful! Thanks for sharing! :)

  6. This is such a delicious recipe for fall, friend! It was so delicious and I love your pictures! 

  7. I love kale! And this salad looks so fresh and healthy! Can’t wait to try this! Thanks for sharing!

  8. Never knew a salad could be so easy and yummy! That dressing looks delicious!! Wish I had this for lunch. Yum! 

  9. This looks really good. I’m a law school student and this would be perfect for an energy boost, healthy, quick lunch or snack. I try to make several meals on the weekend to take to school for the lunch during the week. How long will this salad last if made ahead of time? Also, I don’t have 15-20 mins to spare to wait for the dressing to wilt the spinach on my lunch break, how soon can I put the dressing on if I plan to eat lunch/snack that day? I’m typically at school from 8-5 M-F and eat lunch about Noon. Lastly, what protein would you recommend to add in this salad (chicken)?
    Thank you!

    • This will keep for one day. You can add the dressing in the morning before you head out, it will be totally fine. I think grilled chicken would be great in this :-) Thanks for stopping by.

  10. Sunny days are amazing when you’re in the mood to get out and ENJOY life! But cloudy days are a good excuse to stay in and cook and snuggle ;) Love how puffy and cheesy this quiche looks. yuuuuum!
