Kale Salad for Christmas

Kale Salad

1/2 pound fresh Kale (leaves only)
1/3 - 1/2 cup crumbled Feta or goat cheese
1/4 -1/2 cup soft sundried tomatoes
1/4 cup toasted almond slivers
1/4 cup golden raisins
Black pepper to taste
Drizzle blood orange extra virgin olive oil
Drizzle thick aged balsamic vinegar

Clean the kale and pat dry. Pull the leaves only of the kale and place on a platter not a bowl. Be sure the leaves are bite size.  Discard or reserve the veins and stalks.

Spread the feta, sundried tomatoes, almonds, and raisins on top of the kale. Grind fresh pepper on top and drizzle with oil and balsamic.  Do not mix.  Use salad spoons to serve.  The idea for not mixing the salad is that each bite is to savor each individual ingredients on its own.
Fresh Kale

This is a great salad to serve for the holidays.  It can be made ahead and it is very healthful and tasty. You can use any toasted nuts you like such as hazelnuts, pistachio, or walnuts.
