brussels sprouts & kale salad

the other night i made us a delicious salad for dinner.
its so tasty plus its chock full of important nutrients. with the weather warming up this dish is just right for spring or summer picnic. its greens are very sturdy so they won't wilt as quickly as a lettuce and it's dressing is a simple vinegar & oil. 
we enjoyed it so much so i thought you might as well.
here's the recipe ...via iPhone pix.


6     cups fresh brussels sprouts peeled
1     cup fresh kale chopped 
1/3  cup dried cherries
1/4  cup red onion thinly sliced
2     cups fresh strawberries sliced
2/3  cup walnuts chopped
1/4  cup feta cheese 

combine all ingredients in a large serving bowl dress & enjoy. 

1/4   cup organic apple cider vinegar 
1/3   cup extra virgin olive oil
zest & juice from 1/4 of a fresh lemon 
salt & fresh ground pepper to taste

combine dressing ingredients in a jar close & shake to mix.
