Garlicky Kale Salad with Grains
This past holiday season I got a large number of cookbooks, and I’m still going through them almost a month later and probably will be for weeks to come. I’ve already tested a few recipes from the Tagine cookbook, and decided to stop neglecting the others and see what goodies that had in store. One of them is Raising the Salad Bar, and while it’s not a vegetarian cookbook, its setup makes it very easy to bypass the meat and go straight to the good stuff. There are set recipes to follow but also tips for how to pick and choice various parts of each salad in order to come up with something totally new. So using the grain section as a guide I decided to throw something together based on what I had left from various meals during the week.
Even tho I’ve primarily been vegetarian for the past decade I’ve never been a big salad person, seeing them as side dishes or appetizers but rarely as the main course. This book is quickly changing my mind regarding what makes up a salad and while this salad certainly isn’t fancy but it’s quick, simple, and very filling.
