Kale Loaded Pasta Salad

Today calls for sharing a simple use of kale in a recipe that I'm sure everyone knows (and maybe even loves). I know that I love pasta salad. Not only because it is pasta + salad, but because I can use up an assortment of vegetables that are in season or that we just have on had. Feel free to substitute any veggies that you see fit. 

Kale Loaded Pasta Salad

2 bunches of kale
1 cup of favorite pasta 
1/4 cup chopped (or shredded) favorite cheese
1/4 cup feta crumbles
1 chopped pepper
1 sliced cucumber
1 chopped tomato
pepperoni slices 
generous helping of favorite oil & vinegar based dressing

Cook pasta and set to the side to cool. Clean and chop kale. Place chopped kale, peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes and pepperoni slices into large bowl. Add cooled pasta and dressing. Toss. Add cheese and toss again. Chill for an hour or more and serve cold.
