Quick Kick Salad!

Summers are not always as leisurely as I would like. I curate at a museum in an old gold rush town; my husband delivers frozen foods to customers in Idaho's Treasure Valley and Boise National Forest; and our youngest son is busy with high school football, summer camps, and a cute girlfriend. Much of the time, I just want simple

Trader Joe's Cruciferous Crunch collection can be embellished in a myriad of ways. Featuring kale, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, green and red cabbage, it is awaiting whatever whim I come home with.

One of our favorite preparations is Quick Kick Salad! It is low-carb, delicious, and filling.


Note: Adjust the ingredients to your personal taste.

  • 2 heaping tablespoons of mayonnaise
  • 1 heaping teaspoon of stone ground mustard
  • 1 heaping teaspoon of muchi curry (in the bulk section of a natural grocery store)
  • flaky Maldon salt and pepper to taste
Mix the mayonnaise, mustard, curry, salt, and pepper together in a separate bowl. This ensures that the dressing is distributed evenly. Taste it first and then blend it with the Cruciferous Crunch in a larger bowl. 

Eat it right away or allow the flavors to marry in the refrigerator.

Kickingly Yours,
