Wash the kale and then remove the center rib/stem of each leaf. Cut the kale into 2 inch pieces and place in a large bowl.
Dice the apple into small chunks, leaving the core behind. Add to the bowl.
Shred ¼ cup cheddar cheese. Put most in the bowl, reserving a bit for adding to the top of the salads.
Into a mason jar or other jar/container with a lid, add the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, dijon mustard, honey, and a sprinkling of salt and pepper. Shake until well combined. Pour over the salad and then toss the salad together with the dressing.
Plate the salad onto two plates or bowls and sprinkle the remaining cheddar cheese over the top.
