The Green Grocer: Make everyone happy!



You know that phrase, “You can’t make everyone happy”? Well what if I told you you could? What if I said there was a salad so special that vegans, gluten-free folks, and paleo eaters alike would love it? And what if I told you it’s so easy to make that it’s not too late to add it to your Thanksgiving menu? And what if I promised you that it’s so delicious even the meat and potato lovers in your life will like it? And what if I even said your kids would be asking for seconds?

OK, those last two are probably a stretch. And you likely know by now that I’m partial to kale salads, so I wouldn’t fault you if you questioned my credibility on this one. But this salad really is a dream and it will be on my Thanksgiving menu this year. Lucky for me kale is on sale at the co-op right now!
