  • 1/4 cup pecans (20 g)
  • 1 cup arugula (20 g)
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

Dressing Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

Use a good quality olive oil to massage the kale: Make sure you grab the best tasting olive oil you can get to massage your kale! The olive oil will penetrate all over the kale, so the better the olive oil, the better your salad will taste!
