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.

  5. Can use raspberries instead of cranberries for this recipe?

    • I think the raspberries will become mushy and not hold very good. If anything I would say blueberries but even still I think you may encounter the same problem. You can try it but I don’t know if it will work though. Thanks for visiting my blog :-)

    • I am not sure!!! Eggs helps with the structure so I am no sure if the cake will hold with the apple sauce alone!

    • I tried it and it worked perfectly. I also substitute Coconut Sugar for normal sugar as that is what I had.  It turned out lovely.  It was a delicious recipe, thank you :)
