Jackee’s Kale Salad with Feta and dried Cranberries

by Jackee Foster, cheesemaker/Mermaid Farm and Dairy


  • 1 large bunch kale (about 12 leaves) removed from stalk
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup toasted sunflower kernels
  • 1/2 c crumbled or diced Mermaid Farm Feta
  • 1 crisp apple, diced small

Slice kale in very thin strips. In a large bowl mix kale with salt and begin to massage vigorously for 3 minutes. This breaks down the fibers and releases some of the bitter flavor. Toss with vinegar and evoo. Add remaining ingredients and serve.
