Recipe by Steinbachtroop
"A favorite for potlucks, family gatherings, and hot summer nights at home.
With a food processor to chop the kale, I can be done and out the door to a party within 25 minutes - and that includes 5 minutes to find my keys.
My kids love this salad when I add lots of apples!"

salt, or to taste
kale, stems removed and leaves chopped
sweetened dried cranberries (such as Ocean Spray® Craisins®)
toasted unsalted sunflower seeds
raw apple cider vinegar
crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
Excellent balance of tastes and quite pretty to display as well. I used fresh pomegranate seeds instead of craisins, which tasted lovely! Great with or without the cheese. Also, it makes a huge difference to massage the kale.
I didn't have dried cranberries, sunflower seeds, or Gorgonzola cheese. I used walnuts and didn't use any cheese. Next time I make I may add some goat cheese. This was an absolute hit for my husband and me. Next will be to make it for some of my picky family!
Easy to make and tasty this salad is a hit!
I made this for the first time just last week as my husband had told he did not like kale. When he tasted this- I am now be making it for the third time. A few tweaks.. sometimes I use mandarin oranges and my olive oil has been either citrus or blood orange flavor. It was suggested to use rasberry vinegar so did that one with the oranges. Used goat cheese too. This evening, this will be served to our dinner guests while my husbands approval. What a switch from a week ago!
