Broccoli and Kale Salad with Mustard Currant Dressing

The salad we made in the Gilmore Park Community Kitchen is a warm or cooked salad unlike the usual raw and cold salad.


This Broccoli and Kale with Mustard Currant Dressing is rich in vitamins and antioxidants. Have you seen the commercial on broccoli as a miracle food?


Well, broccoli is not only nutritious, but one can make music with it.

    You could also easily microwave the vegetables. This looks really tasty — I think you could use a variety of simple dressings on the warm vegetables. Everyone should eat more kale, right?
