HOMEMADE BALSAMIC DRESSING

2-3 cup balsamic vinegar or to taste
1 TBSP red wine vinegar
1 TBSP dijon mustard
1 tsp honey
1 clove garlic smashed and minced

After washing and drying your kale, remove the ribs/stem from each kale leaf.
Tear or chop the kale into bite-sized pieces.
Pour a little olive oil in your hands and work your way through the kale, massaging the leaves until they darken in color and tenderize.
Finish it off with a pinch of salt and combine with strawberries, candied walnuts, and asparagus.
For the dressing, add all ingredients to a mason jar and shake well. Drizzle as desired over your salad. Leftover dressing can be kept tightly sealed in the fridge for several days.
Top with feta and dig in!
