Seasonal greens and fruit – the best combination! Feel free to change this up with any types of greens and seasonal fruit you have on hand.
I always have a tricky time finding out how to use cabbage. I’m used to having it in soups, filled cabbage rolls, and coleslaw, but honestly not much else. Recently, I had a chopped Caesar salad that incorporated kale and cabbage, among other ingredients. I liked the combination and was surprised the raw cabbage wasn’t super bitter. I was inspired to created my own version at home, combining the greens with some local nectarines on top! This salad was a huge hit, and I’m looking forward to making more versions of it this summer. I hope you all enjoy this simple, delicious recipe as much as I have! Happy salad crafting! 🙂
