Freshen Up

Summer is finally on the horizon, and with that, many people are looking for lighter meal choices. Mix up a worn out routine with some fresh and trending summertime veggies! Incorporating Markon’s RSS Shredded Kale Blend can be a healthy and flavorful component to any summer grilled protein.

As a base ingredient, kale can be mixed in with summer greens, crunchy cabbage, hearty vegetables, seasonal fruit, and highly acidic dressings to create an easy and exceptional salad. It is a very versatile component. As a rule of thumb, RSS Shredded Kale can be treated like a cabbage based slaw, putting a unique twist on a classic dish, while alternatively, Baby Kales have more of an arugula texture and can be substituted for any leafy green. A fun idea is to blend the two together for a crunchy and flavorful summertime starter.

An example of this can be shown in the recipe below. This salad will stand out this summer and will create a diverse and healthy option. It can also easily be transformed into a hearty vegetarian or gluten free option, catering to all customers.
