ROASTED PUMPKIN SEED & KALE SALAD

August 24, 2017

Sorry I’m not sorry, but I have to do my first glimmer of autumnal food. IF YOU ARE NOT READY FOR THAT, this salad can still be embarked on in a mindset for any time of year. Really we are in the phase where I start doing summer and fall fusion stuff (like these pumpkin zucchini muffins). The mango is summer; the roasted pumpkin seeds are fall. Kale is winter, so really this meal is just BOUNDLESS.

The kale is raw in this dish, which is really convenient. If you are sure to slice your kale thinly it will end up completely flavorful and tender, without even being cooked! What makes this salad the best is that the sturdiness of the kale allows it to keep so well. It is even better the second day, so a good make it ahead course too when entertaining.
