My mom always had the very best summer salads. I never quite knew her secret until later in life and this one is too good not to share. It is simply a matter of draining the boiled tomatoes and topping them with a mixture of red wine vinegar and sugar. The end result is, quite simply, amazing!
I love kale but I also know a lot of people that are not huge fans of this super-good-for-you food. When I created this salad, that is filling enough for an entire meal, it helped turn kale-no-bees into yes please!
I use quinoa and Trader Joe’s Rice Medley which makes it hardy and nutritious but you can substitute any other grain of choice including Israeli couscous.
