Winter Kale Salad

Minoo whipped up a feast of Kale in the Gilmore Park Church Community Kitchen. This is because she got a big box of kale from Arzeena from the Richmond Sharing Farm.


The first kale recipe is Winter Kale Salad. The kale salad is paired with pear and blue cheese which is a perfect match.

    What kind of kale is this? It looks much more tender than the usual stuff I can find.

      Hi etranger, I think they are called Russian kale.
