On Sunday, amid 82 degree weather and the first few whispers of DC summer humidity, nothing could have felt more right than this bright, flavorful, and green salad. It features lots of my favorite things, including blueberries, toasted walnuts, and tender baby kale.
The kale in this case was brought to me by the folks at Dole®, who recently offered me a chance to try some of their new Power Up Greens™ blends. These feature dark, nutrient dense lettuces that are ready to eat. I got three boxes: baby kale, baby kale & greens, and spring mix & greens. I enjoyed them all, but it was the two baby kale mixes I liked most; I was especially into the baby kale & greens mix, which features baby kale, baby spinach, baby green chard, and baby red chard. We all know the value of these greens–Vitamin K, A, C, manganese, calcium, antioxidants–but it can be hard to squeeze them in when schedules get crowded and kitchen time is cut short. Baby green blends, and the salads they create, make it easy.
