What is your favorite summer kale recipe? 

Here’s one of mine . . .
Kale is not one of my favorite veggies, but somehow Green Diva Jen, (AKA Jenifer O’Neill) has been slowly converting me. She contributed this recipe as well as the actual dish for our wonderful staff picnic last year (photo was taken on my back deck!). She seems to find great ways to get more kale into the mix!


1/2 head kale (any variety)
1/2 head green cabbage
1/2 head red cabbage
4 large carrots
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar or umeboshi plum vinegar
1 cup your favorite mayonnaise
1 tablespoon honey
Freshly ground pepper
Splash of water


Wash, pat dry and finely shred kale and cabbages. Peel and grate carrot. Put vegetables in a large bowl. In small bowl or measuring cup whisk together mayonnaise, honey, vinegar, pepper and water. Pour dressing over vegetables and toss. Refrigerate. Best if it sits a bit before serving. Lasts several days in the refrigerator.

got any other cool kale ideas for summer?
