With the surprising addition of fresh mint leaves, this kale and pear salad combines tender kale, juicy ripe pears, briny feta cheese, and a sprinkling of savory granola, topped with a creamy yogurt dressing.
Whisk yogurt, olive oil, maple syrup, lemon juice, cider vinegar, and salt in a large bowl. Add kale and massage with the dressing (about 3 minutes or so) to soften the leaves. Add pear, onion, and mint, and toss to combine.
Serve the salad topped with feta, savory granola, and additional mint, if desired.
Massaged kale will keep a few days in the fridge, tightly covered. Store the other components of the salad separately for best results.
Thinly sliced apples are a good substitute for pears.
