Fresh and Crispy Kale Salad
The only thing better than a homemade meal is a homegrown meal – and creating fresh and delicious salads using vegetables, fruits, and herbs grown in your own backyard is about as fresh as it gets when it comes to summer dining.
“Self-contained salad bowls are a great way to start growing your own produce,” says Peter Cantley, gardening expert for the President's Choice brand. “They're very low maintenance because they grow right in the container so there's no need to replant them or worry about them having enough room to grow.”
If you've never tasted kale raw in a salad, try this recipe, says Cantley, using the PC Kale Bowl. The fruit-and-nut combo is perfect for summer while the balsamic condiment, pine nuts and pecorino give it a wonderful Italian flavour. The recipe easily doubles for a crowd, perfect for your next backyard barbecue.
