Salem Farmer's Market Finds

I got a great haul at the farmer's market today. I intended to just pick up a few things for a side salad, but ended up with so much more. And I only spent a total of $19.

What you see here is 2 bunches of green kale, tomatoes, 2 cucumbers, 1 green pepper, 1 pepperoncini, and blueberries, all organic, from Heavens Harvest Farm. I also picked up 2 loaves of bread- kalamata olive and ciabetta, from Pain D'Avignon.

I made a simple salad with 1 cucumber, tomatoes and both peppers. I added some black cured olives. It was tossed with some olive oil, salt and pepper and served with some of the olive bread.


Next I have to get busy cooking all that kale. At least one bunch is going to be made into kale chips. Yum!

Anyone have any good kale recipes? I usually just steam or saute with garlic and add some lemon juice and salt, but am interested in other ways to enjoy it.
