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.
