Savory Kale with Cranberries and Feta

savory kale with cranberries and fetaNot sure why I wasn’t excited to see kale in our box this week. However, when I found this recipe from allrecipes.com, I got more excited. I like just about anything with dried cranberries. Commercially dried cranberries have added sugar, so I decided to eliminate it. I decided to use balsamic vinegar to make it a little more savory, and added feta cheese for “pop.” This was so good, my husband and I each ate 3 servings!
