Summer Recipe : Sweet & Salty Greens

We belong to a food co-op, which means that every other week we get to pick up a couple of baskets of produce for pretty low cost, and it's good quality stuff.  However, we don't choose...we just get what we get, and work with it.  There are some foods that we have consistently gotten that no one is a big fan of at our house.  Sometimes we trade, sometimes we don't.  So, I've had to get creative!!

Kale is one of those foods that I don't usually trade out (the asparagus needs to find a new home first!), but we get it a lot.  You might remember us baking up some yummy Kale Chips...and we sometimes eat it raw.  This week, we discovered a great recipe that everyone loved!  Even the kids.  'Nuff said.  You should go and try it...afterwards, pick up your own copy of Lighten Up, Y'all, by Virginia Willis, and enjoy even more great recipes with this summer's bounty!
