RECIPE: Radish and Kale Salad

When you’ve got a great dressing, like Annie’s Lemon and Chive or this delicious Cilantro & Lime dressing, it hardly matters what’s in your salad.  Am I right? With a good dressing you can have 1 and 2 ingredient salads. Choose what’s in season, what’s on sale, what ‘ruffles your skirt’!

I like this hearty combo. Bam! Bam! Simple and colorful: Kale and radish.  Both are in season and are nutritionally dense enough to stand alone. Yet, by themselves, aren’t quite as palatable as served together in a salad.

Sure, you can add cucumber or sunflower seeds, shredded carrots and peppers, or citrus and beets.  But sometimes it’s nice to make it easy on yourself.  Two ingredients and off you go!  Use that extra time that you’re not chopping veggies, to kick your feet up, finish your book or call that good friend you’ve been meaning to call.

    Can I tell you a secret? I don’t really like salad dressings. I’ll eat them every once in a while, but otherwise I like my salads bare naked. Weird, right? Kale and radish sounds so simple and so good? Maybe a squeeze of lemon juice over the top? Perfect!

      Good for you! I suppose that’s how we all should get our greens in (not drenched in dressing!)
