Gourmet moment: Feta cheese and kale salad

Buon apetit my dear readers! :) 
As you might already know, I'm in the midst of moving 
and am swamped with tons of boxes that need to be packed 
and stored + I'm trying to empty my fridge completely, so 
while not having much time to cook anything special and 
using only the ingredients that I have left in my fridge, I've 
decided to whip up a healthy salad for yesterday's lunch and 
my family loved it!

It's very easy to prepare, takes minimum time and effort, but 
is way tastier and healthier than any take away/ fast food option. 

You can of course still add more toppings/ ingredients to this 
salad if you wish and you can also serve it as a main course 
or then as a side salad to (in my case) oven baked sweet potatoes. 

Here's what you'll need:

*kale ( take the stems off and break the leaves in smaller pieces )
*fresh rucola ( rocket leaves )
*bell pepper
*cherry tomatoes
*crumbled fresh Feta cheese 
*olive oil
*lemon juice
*salt, pepper, dry oregano
*1 tbs of Dijon mustard

Remove the stems off of kale leaves and "break" the leaves into smaller pieces. 
Put them in a bowl in which you'll be "whipping up" this salad. 
Take a handful of sprouts, wash them and put them in the salad bowl. 
Chop up fresh rucola, bell pepper and cherry tomatoes and add all of them to the bowl 
as well. Squeeze a little bit of lemon juice in and mix everything ( with hands or fork ) 
for a minute to two so that you make kale a little bit more softer. 
Then add crumbled, fresh Feta cheese  on top and chopped up radishes. 

To prepare the dressing, you'll need a tablespoon of olive oil, half a tablespoon of balsamico, 
tablespoon of Dijon mustard, pinch of salt, pepper and oregano. 
Mix up all of the ingredients, "spill" them over the salad and mix up everything together. 
Your salad is ready! :)
