The kale in the garden is getting robust, so it’s time to power through! I’ve also got scallions, mint, celery and cilantro in abundance, so I decide to make a “kale slaw” with all this green.
I threw in some raisins for some sweetness and color, but it wasn’t enough.
So I added some carrots…
Tossed in some mayonnaise, lemon juice and topped it off with crispy rice noodles, and viola!
Kale is a cool season plant loaded with vitamins and minerals–it’s really a complete food. Onions, carrots, cilantro and celery grow under the similar conditions necessary to grow kale, so it’s a good idea to grow them all at once.
