Summertime, when the eatin's easy. The produce is getting amazing, and the farmers' markets are bursting with incredible inspiration. This summertime salad features ingredients that you likely received in your CSA box or can easily procure at your local greenmarket. My mother-in-law made this salad at a recent family gathering. It immediately won me over due to its layer upon layer of crunchy goodness as well as its complexity of flavors. Pickled onions, roasted cauli and beets, zesty dressing, protein-filled quinoa, and the option of robust blue cheese make this summer salad a bonafide winner. This crunch fest can easily serve as a fully balanced meal or as a summery side. Since durable and hearty kale is the foundation, this salad is great to make ahead and enjoy for the next day or two.
