I know, I need to back away from the kale. It’s so 2013. Retro, almost? Can’t. Stop.
The thing about big salads is that when I make them they tend to wind up with loads of cheese, or bacon, or eggs, or other things that have more business being on a burger than atop a salad. Here, I mulched together only good things – kale, carrots, baby bok choy, broccoli slaw, red peppers, pea pods, cilantro, sunflower seeds – and tossed it all with sweet-tanginess spiked with sesame oil. I could feel myself becoming more virtuous as I ate it. And I’m pretty sure I can see better in the dark.
If I’m stingy with my words this week, it’s because I have a cookbook manuscript due in a little over a week (!!) and I’m a little tapped out. I’m powering through with slaw.
