Broccoli-Walnut Pasta w/ side of raw Ginger Kale Salad #WeeknightSupper

Here it is...
Another week, another version of the raw Kale salad.  It is maybe not a weekly thing, but we just love, love, love raw Kale and I do need to mix it up a big, right?!  Tonight it was  raw Ginger Kale Salad - ginger was a great addition giving it a little hint of warmth, and flavor burst.

So today - sorry to disappoint - I do not have a real recipe; but here is what I put together

Scallions, toasted sesame seed oil, rice vinegar, salt, pepper, 1 Tbl. grated lemon peel, app. 1/2" ginger finely minced {not grated}, a couple of carrots {diced}, and a bunch of lacinato kale finely chopped.  1. Put together all the ingredients for the dressing {hold the carrots and kale}.  Mix well, and then add
2. Kale and carrots. Mix up and let stand for at least 15 minutes before serving!

The Broccoli-Walnut Pasta was also an absolute hit.  Fresh broccoli we received today from our CSA box was delicious.  This is such a quick and easy meal.  Toasted Walnuts, broccoli sauteed with garlic, edamame, finely chopped lemon peel. Toss everything with a little Olive Oil and season it with salt and pepper.  The recipe is not mine - it is from one of my favorite cookbooks Simple Suppers. Top it with toasted {350F for about 10-15 minutes}. Serve it with Parmesiano Regiano  - we did because the girls need the calcium, or keep it vegan.  Delicious either way.
