Kale and Swiss Chard Salad with Feta and Chicken

I went into a Whole Foods in search of horseradish (get excited for the future) and saw the following:

Super Foods, eh? I like the way that sounds. So I found a recipe for a Kale, Swiss Chard, Feta, and Chicken Salad and knew I had to make it.

Kale and Swiss Chard Salad with Feta and Chicken

Here's the original recipe: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/kale-swiss-chard-chicken-and-feta-salad/detail.aspx

Here's my extremely similar recipe:

Most of 1 bunch of Kale chopped
Most of 1 bunch of Swiss Chard chopped
1 lb. Boneless Skinless Chicken Tenders chopped
8 oz. Feta
Bunch of Raisons
Bunch of Pecans

1 tbsp Honey
0.25 c. Apple Cider Vinegar
0.25 c. Olive Oil
Pinch of Oregano
Salt and Pepper to taste

I cut the Oil and Vinegar in half, because I don't like too much dressing, but left the rest unchanged and I loved it. I set aside a little of the greens for my lizard, because he's a lover of Super Foods, used 8 oz. of Feta, because that was the size of the package, and used Pecans instead of Walnuts, because that's what I have in my apartment. It's a truly delicious meal. I've only eaten Kale cooked in soup and Swiss Chard sautéed, so in addition to being an excellent meal, it has also been enlightening. I used to think these greens were thick and unappetizing, but not anymore. If you've ever had doubts, make this salad.
