Broccoli Rabe and Kale Harvest Salad

Kale and broccoli rabe salad from Andy Boy

Combining blanched broccoli rabe with massaged kale makes for a nice twist on a typical kale salad. It gives the greens a little extra dimension. The orange-cranberry vinaigrette has a nice zip from fresh ginger, and helps to lighten the heft of the greens. Shaved fennel and apples add some beautiful and fresh crunch. There’s a little something for everyone with this salad.
This recipe is vegan. For a gluten-free option, replace the farro with some cooked quinoa or wild rice.

The benefits of fermented foods for gut health and the new dimension of flavours that develop through this process are two great reasons to give this a try! This recipe has been tweaked for the North American palate by replacing cabbage with watermelon rind and the removal of fish sauce. You’ll be so glad you tried it!
