Wash and dry the kale. Remove the stems and cut into bite size pieces.
In a small pan, dry toast the pecan pieces over medium heat until warm and fragrant. Watch closely so they do not burn.
Toss the kale and shredded carrot in the dressing. Add the cranberries, cheddar, and toasted pecans.
Honey Mustard Salad Dressing
In a small bowl, whisk together all the dressing ingredients. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
If the kale tastes bitter add the kale to a large bowl. Add a small amount of dressing and massage with your hands for 2 minutes. Let the kale sit for 5 to 10 minutes before assembling the rest of the salad.
