Kale salad
I used to always avoid salads with fruit in them, thinking that they just didn't belong there, but recently I've discovered how well fruits work in salads. In this one, for instance, the sweetness of mango adds a colorful touch to the salad that nicely pairs with the toasted pumpkin seeds and creamy avocado.  Click here to see Dinner Recipes in 30 Minutes or Less.

Raw Shiitake Kale Salad
One night I went to a fabulous event in Boulder hosted by Bauman College. During this evening one of the graduates from Bauman's chef program did a great cooking demo for a raw kale salad with shiitake mushrooms (it had a number of other ingredients as well). The next day, I was determined to make a version of my own. Before that evening, I had not thought of eating raw mushrooms, however, after tasting the Bauman salad, I was sold. So, I picked kale from our garden in the blistering heat and began to concoct the dish below.

Kale Chips
I love it when America obsesses over something and it really takes off. And today, people are going nuts over kale, which is a good thing because kale is an amazing source of vitamin A. Paired with the toasty, sea-mineral accent of roasted nori — itself a nutritional powerhouse of both vitamin A and calcium — it makes a delicious, super-healthy alternative to the standard football-watching fare. With the right amount of seasoning, these are a knockout. Click here to see 'Sweet' Cooking Advice with Sam Talbot.

Chorizo, Potato, and Kale Hash
By
While breakfast hashes are typically chock-full of greasy bacon or sausage and potatoes, I love making hashes using leaner chorizos, such as ground turkey or chicken chorizo. Replacing russet potatoes with yams or sweet potatoes and adding kale makes this breakfast a healthier alternative to your typical hash. You can also use this hash to make breakfast burritos and tacos, or an omelet.  — Julia Mueller This recipe is from Julia’s Let Them Eat Kale cookbook.

Curly kale and other hearty dark green vegetables are in season. Soaking the leafy green in a refreshing lemon and garlic dressing overnight will make the leaves more tender, and curb the bitterness. This side dish is rich in beta-carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, and calcium — these vitamins will help ward away flu in the upcoming cold season.
