This easy holiday salad gets its flavor from a sweet citrus dressing that's infused into the kale by massaging the greens and the dressing together with your hands. We like a mix of kale for this recipe, but any type of kale will work.
Stir shallot and vinegar together in a large bowl; let stand for 5 minutes. Whisk in oil, honey, orange zest, orange juice, salt and pepper. Add kale and massage the mixture gently with your hands until the kale is lightly wilted, about 3 minutes. Arrange the salad on a platter; sprinkle with cranberries and almonds.
Simple and delicious. No need to wait for Thanksgiving for this one -- it's delicious with the garden-fresh kale I have now.
