Yellow Beets Kale Salad
Insalata di cavolo nero toscano e barbabietole gialle
The bright colours of a yellow beets kale salad brighten up the plate and chase away my dark wintry moods. The beets still have a raw crunch and freshness, while the kale – apart from being incredible good for you – adds depths to the taste. Top the salad with nuts and berries and crisp fried prosciutto, and you’ll have a new favourite winter salad.
In Italy red beets have only just been discovered, which makes yellow beets so much harder to find. Kale is normally known as cavolo nero toscano or cavolo senza testa (cabbage without a head). It’s best known as an ingredient in ribollita, but it’s no less good in this yellow beets kale salad.
