Meatless Monday: Dried Figs, Pecans & Goat’s Cheese Kale Salad

Mummy’s Fast & Easy

Meatless Monday Recipe of the day is this too healthy salad with kale, dried figs, goat’s cheese and pecans.
This was so good and filling that I only regret I didn’t make more. 
I really enjoy sweet and sour tastes combined together. It’s like an explosion of so many different flavors.
The salad is way too easy to make but there’s one tricky step – you must massage the kale first!
I know how it may sound but, believe me, literally you need to massage it with your hands with a bit of olive oil and salt. Thus, it becomes much softer and palatable. 

So here’s what you need for this health-boosting goodness.

Tip: Kale loves acid so be generous on the vinegar (I like combining a bit of fresh lemon juice with some balsamic vinegar)!
