Massaged Kale with Star Fruit, Mango and Roasted Calabaza Seeds

Posted Dec 14 2010 9:31am
Check out this good lookin' lunch.

Half kale with star fruit salad and half roasted calabaza over fresh lettuce with some fresh organic goat feta from the St. Augustine Farmers Market.

I did my roasted calabaza again but this time I added apples too.  I also toasted the seeds for the kale salad.YUM.

Do you watch the Food Network?  Have you heard of the new show Aarti Party?  One of her recipes is this massaged kale salad with mango but I added my own twist by adding star fruit, roasted calabaza seeds from my CSA squash and, for lunch, a few raisins too.
