Zippy Kale Salad with Fennel, Sweet Onion, and Goji Berries

This raw kale salad has a zippy grapefruit dressing that counteracts the bitter of the kale. Although the amount of chopped kale called for in this recipe seems like a lot, keep in mind that after it's massaged with the dressing it looks like a small salad for about 6 people! I've been using siberian kale from my garden in my kale salads because it is so tender and mild, however any variety of kale will work.

I created this salad because of the fennel, kale, and sweet onions growing in my garden and I have to say that the flavor combination is out-of-this-world good! I think you will really enjoy it, however if you don't have sweet onions or are following a low-FODMAP diet, add a 1/2 cup of chopped chives or green onions instead. If you are avoiding nightshades then be sure to omit the goji berries….they are part of the nightshade family! You could replace them with dried currants or cranberries if desired. Tip: be sure to remove the thick rib/stem that runs down the center of each kale leaf before chopping.
