Shredded Kale, Tomatoes, Feta, and Mint Salad

Kale has sturdy leaves that make it an excellent choice for a hearty salad. In this Greek-inspired recipe, flat-leaf kale is cut into ribbons and massaged with olive oil and salt to soften it without having to cook it. Then garlic is smashed into a paste and whisked with cider vinegar, Dijon mustard, and olive oil to make a tangy, garlicky dressing. Toss the kale and dressing with cherry tomatoes, feta cheese, and scallions, and serve as a light, healthy lunch or a flavorful side dish next to roasted chicken or grilled salmon.

Instructions

  1. 1Wash and dry the kale. Cut out and discard the tough stems. Arrange the leaves into stacks, slice crosswise into 1/4-inch ribbons, and place in a large bowl. Add 2 teaspoons of the oil and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and gently squeeze and toss the leaves with your hands until they’re coated with the oil and have softened slightly.
  2. 2Place the garlic and remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt on a cutting board and drag the side of a chef’s knife across them at a 15-degree angle until a smooth paste forms.
  3. 3Transfer the garlic paste to a medium, nonreactive bowl, add the vinegar and mustard, and whisk to combine. While whisking continuously, add the remaining oil in a slow, steady stream until fully incorporated.
  4. 4Add the dressing to the bowl with the kale and toss to coat the leaves. Add the tomatoes, feta, scallions, and mint and toss to combine. Taste and season with salt as needed. Serve immediately.
