Summer is almost over, and Fall is closing in! I don’t know about you, but I’m not really ready for the cooler days just yet.
However, I do love the more dense and heavy food that comes with Fall, such as all the different Squash, Kale, Apples, rood veggies, the different cabbages, Cauliflower, Broccoli, and Brussel Sprouts!
Today I felt for a Kale salad!
We always have Kale growing in our Tower Garden, both outside in the summer season and indoors in the winter season. It is a very robust crop, and one of the few that can actually tolerate snow and frost if grown in your garden!
Kale is packed with nutrition, such as high levels of Vitamin K, C and A, along with a number of different minerals like Calsium, Magnesium and Iron. Kale is also a very good source of fibers, which benefits your digestive system!
I have made many different variations of Kale salad, but this is the first with pickled red onion, inspired by Mette at @dethandlermestommad back in Denmark.
8-10 curly kale leafs
1/2 cup pickled red onion, get the recipe here
1/2 cup of salted almonds
Pepper or you favorite spice for salads
2 tbsp of olive oil
Cut off the stems and chop the kale leafs fine. Take the olive oil and massage the kale really good so it gets soft.
Dice the apples and add them along with the rest. Mix and serve with crumbled goats cheese.
