Kale Crunch Salad (Chick-Fil-A Copycat!)

This Kale Crunch Salad is an upgraded version of Chick-Fil-A's recipe. The salad has the traditional flavors and some extra tasty additions!

First, preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. To make the honey roasted pecans, place the chopped pecans on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.

Drizzle the honey over them and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Use a spatula to make sure the nuts are completely covered. Bake for 8-12 minutes, turning halfway through to keep the nuts from burning.

Allow the pecans to cool completely as you prepare the other ingredients for the salad. They will harden as they cool.

Make the salad dressing. Place all the ingredients into a small jar. Put the lid on and shake until combined. Alternatively, use a fork and whisk the dressing very well.

Clean, de-stem and chop the kale, throw it into a salad bowl with a bit of dressing. Gently massage the greens with clean hands for about 2-3 minutes. You will feel that the leaves are not as tough after massaging.

Add the green cabbage, feta, apple, and nuts to the bowl. Pour desired amount of the dressing over the salad, toss and enjoy!
