Baby Kale and Beet Salad with Walnut Dressing

Recipe and photo by Ulla Kjarval, GoldilocksFindsManhattan.com

Ingredients:
4 cups of baby kale (Spinach, Collards, or other leafy green vegetable), washed, stems removed and roughly torn by hand
1 bunch beats, boiled or roasted, peeled and sliced
2 ounces of creamy feta cheese (a more delicate creamy version of feta that I have found here in Queens)
Salt and pepper to taste

Dressing:
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons walnut oil (or olive oil)

Preparation:
Place kale, beets and cheese in a salad bowl and season with salt and pepper.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl whisk together the dressing.
Toss the salad with 2 tablespoons of the dressing in your salad bowl , reserving the rest of the dressing —you will have leftovers—for the next salad!
