Kale & Red Cabbage Slaw with Walnuts

Recipe adapted from Martha Rose Schulman of The New York Times.

 

We are having our first inkling of summer here in the Capay Valley.  Although we are looking at 90º weather, the veggies haven’t gotten the memo yet, so we are still firmly stuck in spring food wise.  Since it will just be too hot to be using my oven much this week, I’ll be making this.  The last of the cold weather crops, reinvented for hot weather.  Enjoy!
