While cold weather calls for soup, warm weather sings out for salads. Cool, crunchy, nourishing salad.
This Massaged Kale Salad from Super Seeds is a lovely canvas on which to add the colors of spring and summer -- sliced fruit and vegetables add interest to this delicious and filling salad. How about adding some sliced strawberries, mango or nectarine, blueberries or pineapple chunks, or orange peppers and cucumbers? Delicious! And the hemp seeds add some protein along with their nutty earthiness. Yum!
Super Seeds is full of recipes that are quick to put together and summer friendly. Now's a great time to pick up a copy so you're ready for summer potlucks, al fresco dinners and cool breakfasts.
