{Festival Of Food} Kale & Parmesan Summer Salad


Welcome to the Festival of Food Carnival. This month, we celebrate Recipes from the Garden!  Hosted by Diary of a First Child and Hybrid Rasta Mama, you’re welcome to join us next time, or if you have a previously published recipe you’d like to share, add it to the linky below.

I’ve put loads of effort into my garden this year, and to be honest, thus far, it hasn’t really paid off! I’m hoping now that summer’s finally arrived, we may have better luck. It certainly can’t get much worse. Kale & Parmesan Salad

That said, the one thing in my garden that’s been glorious, and a steady producer, has been the Kale plant.

I do like Kale, but planted this specially for Kale chips, and maybe some smoothies. I find Kale generally rubbery and tough, and eat it because it’s good for me. Unfortunately I don’t know what variety of Kale I planted, but the leaves are smaller than the ones in the shop, and much more tender, making a delicious raw salad.

  1. Isn’t it interesting how the plants we grow at home can differ from what we buy at the store? I find most of my plants to be less robust than store bought, but I chalk it up to lack of fertilizer and chemicals.

    I’ve never tried kale, actually, but that salad looks so cool and fresh, it makes me want to!

  2. Mmmm, your kale salad looks delicious! I LOVE kale, but I usually eat it cooked because its flavor is generally a little on the bitter side for me to want to eat raw. I’ll give it another go with this recipe and some baby leaves from my garden—thanks for the tip!
