If you’re anything like us, you love a good kale salad. But if you ever find yourself getting tired of them and craving a little variety, this recipe should do the trick.
The addition of kohlrabi makes this salad a big bowl of of nutrient-rich, cancer-fighting, cruciferous goodness. The almond butter miso dressing adds delicious nuttiness, creaminess, and umami flavor. The currants add a touch of sweetness and the raw almonds add a delightful crunch.
We recommend checking out your local farmer’s markets for the kale and kohlrabi, which can be found throughout the winter months. Try pairing this salad with some roasted salmon — or just enjoy it on its own!
