Fall football season is well underway.
Time for cool, crisp days, exciting games and most importantly festive tailgate food.
I'm tackling a quick, easy and healthy salad that will have everyone
cheering for KALE...
A kale salad is perfect for the tailgate game plan because
it doesn't get soggy as it sits,
it just gets better.
The line-up of ingredients is a combo of
kale, spiral pasta, tomatoes and crumbled chicken apple sausage.
Like any good football team,
it's well rounded, hearty and good...
6 cups rough cut kale
1 box pasta cooked and cooled
4 chicken apple sausages, removed from casing, crumbled and cooked
2 cup sliced cherry tomatoes
for the dressing whisk together
2 Tablespoons of finely diced shallot
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon anchovy paste
5 Tablespoons white wine vinegar
10 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Toss kale and pasta with dressing, then top with tomatoes and sausage and gently toss once again.
