hungryinbrooklyn's picture
This time of year, the market is full of leafy greens, but sometimes it’s hard to figure out exactly what to do with them. Take kale for instance. You’re probably used to it braised or sauteed; but kale is also delicious raw if prepared the right way. So move over lettuce! We’ve got a recipe for a Tuscan Kale and Red Cabbage salad that’s crunchy, tangy, delicious, and really good for you!
Ingredients
For the salad
  Lacinato kale 1 Bunch (100 gm), chopped thinly
  Red cabbage 1 Cup (16 tbs), thinly sliced
  Red onion 2 Tablespoon, thinly sliced
  Hazelnuts 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), toasted and chopped
  Parmesan 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), grated
  Red pepper flakes 1⁄4 Teaspoon
For dressing
  Apple cider vinegar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Dijon mustard 1 Teaspoon
  Olive oil 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Salt 1 Pinch
  Black pepper 1 Teaspoon (as required)
