Salad of the day: Pesto Kale and Cabbage Salad

It’s time to get out and pay a visit to your local farmers market!  Mmmm, fresh veggies galore!!  Tired of your boring old salad!? Give this recipe a try:

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Walnuts
  • 1 1/2 cups Kale
  • 1/4 cup Pesto Sauce
  • 1 cup White Wine Vinegar
  • 2 cups Red Cabbage

Directions:

Place walnuts in a pan over medium low heat and toast for 5-8 minutes, stirring often. Rinse kale well, drain to dry, and remove the ribs. (To remove the ribs, lay the leaf face down on a cutting board and slice along the middle stem sothat you are left with two leaves and the stem). Chop into small pieces and place in a large bowl. Mix pesto sauce and vinegar together. Toss red cabbage with kale, drizzle with pesto mixture, and toss in walnuts. Add sea salt and pepper. Let stand at room temperature for 1 hour before serving.

Makes 12 servings
