New Year's Salad

This is a great, tasty way to use dark green leafy vegetables. I have become addicted to this salad. I tried a very similar version from the Earth Fare Deli. Of course, I was left with only a list of ingredients on the deli tub and no proportions. So I had to experiment with it a bit.

1 bunch kale or collard greens (wash and knead in a towel 5 minutes to soften and then chop greens) 1 can black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup sundried tomatoes (in oil or dried) dash of cayene pepper (if you like more kick, try red pepper flakes)
1/2 cup rice wine or apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup good quality EVOO (I like cold pressed)
1/4 cup pine nuts fresh garlic (2 cloves if you like)
Italian herbs to taste
 parsley to taste

Just toss all in a big bowl.
