Last year, Living Light organic gardening students planted kale in the Living Light garden and it is still producing, along with leeks and cabbage! Here is a great salad using all three of these easy-to-grow, high producing, and nutrient rich vegetables.

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1/8 teaspoon Himalayan Crystal Salt

 

SALAD

1/2 bunch kale, stemmed

1/4 head red cabbage, shredded

1 mandarin, diced (1 cup)
