Frill mustard greens are native to the Himalayan region of India. Different mustard green varieties evolved out of China and Japan. Red Frill mustard is in fact, a Japanese heirloom mustard green. All mustard varieties are cool season crops, preferring shorter days, full sun and cooler soil for fast growth. Compared to common mustard greens, Red Frill's commercial exposure is limited it can be found in Asian markets as well as farmers markets in Europe and North America.

How to make kale and broccoli salad

This salad couldn’t be easier to make, and the best part is that it may be made in advance!

Prepare the lemon poppy seed dressing:

1. Place the olive oil, shallot, lemon juice, dijon mustard, maple syrup, poppy seeds and salt and pepper to taste in a small jar.

2. Secure the lid and shake vigorously until emulsified.

Prepare the salad:

3. Tear the kale and place in a large bowl. In order to make the leaves more tender, follow my instructions on how to massage kale.

4. Add the broccoli, apple, red onion, and dried cherries to the bowl of kale.

5. Pour the desired amount of dressing over the salad and toss to coat.

What does kale taste like?

Kale has a strong, somewhat bitter flavor, which many people find overpowering. The bitter flavor is wonderful in this broccoli kale salad however, because it’s paired with citrus and sweet ingredients.

Which kale is best for salads?

There are a few varieties of kale, and which one to choose depends on your taste.

If you’re a big fan of kale for it’s hardy texture and bold flavor, curly kale is a great option.

If you prefer softer leaves and milder flavor, dinosaur or baby kale would be better choices.

Does massaging kale make it less bitter?

When kale is massaged, it softens the leaves dramatically and makes it easier to digest, but it does not eliminate the bitter flavor.

Do you eat the stems of kale?

Kale stems are tough and fibrous, and should not be eaten. I always prep kale myself as bagged, pre-chopped kale includes the tough inner stems.

Nutrition info for Arugula, Kale, Mustard Greens & Dandelion Greens

Arugula is low in calories and high in vitamin A and vitamin C. One-half cup contains about two calories.

Kale eases lung congestion and is beneficial to the stomach, liver and immune system. It contains lutein and zeaxanthin, which protect the eyes from macular degeneration and it also contains indole-3-carbinol, which may protect against colon cancer. Kale is an excellent source of calcium, iron, vitamins A and C, and chlorophyll.

Mustard Greens are an excellent anticancer vegetable. They may also be beneficial for colds, arthritis or depression. While mustard greens sold in the United States are relatively mild in flavor, some mustard green varieties, especially those in Asia, can be as hot as a jalapeno pepper depending on their mustard oil content.

Dandelion Greens are beneficial to digestion and is an antiviral that may be useful in the treatment of AIDS and herpes. It may also be useful in treating jaundice, cirrhosis, edema due to high blood pressure, gout, eczema and acne. Dandelion is also used to treat and prevent breast and lung tumors and premenstrual bloating. Dandelion greens are high in vitamin A (in the form of the antioxidant carotenoid), vitamin C, and also contain calcium and potassium. Dandelion root contains insulin, which lowers blood sugar in diabetics.

Quinoa Bowl Recipe Variations

I’ve made a thousand different variations of this easy quinoa bowl recipe over the years. Here are some of my favorites:

    along with the sweet potato for extra crunch.
  • Use any toasted nut or seed – or a mix – in place of the almonds. I highly recommend pepitas or walnuts.
  • Try millet or farro in place of the quinoa.
  • Add a handful of dried cranberries or dried tart cherries for sweetness.
  • Toss in a few tablespoons of minced herbs – think thyme, parsley, or sage.
  • Use roasted butternut squash instead of sweet potatoes, a mix of roasted root vegetables, or something totally different, like roasted broccoli, cauliflower, or Brussels sprouts!
  • Make a vegan quinoa bowl by swapping the feta for vegan Parmesan or dollops of pesto.
  • Make a southwestern bowl by swapping the chickpeas for black beans, the lemon juice for lime juice, and finishing it with a drizzle of chipotle yogurt sauce!

Let me know what variations you try!

Using Greens and Roots

First, a few pics and updates to help out. The share included a kale that wasn’t mentioned in the list — Siberian Kale. Great firm leaves that store well and taste great.

Image from Kitazawa Seed Co.

One of our radishes was called a Chinese Red radish, but it isn’t red on the outside. It is also called a Watermelon, Red Meat, or Beauty Heart radish. Great in a salad, as a quick pickle, or treated like a turnip (roasted, sauteed, mashed, or stirfried). The peel can be eaten, and apparently the white outer flesh is spicier than the pink inner.

We also have a largish, black skinned radish. It isn’t dirty — just black. These are supposed to have a stronger, peppery flavor. Generally peeled before eating, the size and firmness holds up well to cooking.

(BTW, here is a great reference on radishes)

With the peppers, none of them are very hot. The mirasol (reddish) and mariachi (yellowish) are both fruity, slightly spicy peppers for raw or cooked eating. You’ll recognize the poblano from chile relleno, and they’re good stuffed or turned into a mole sauce.

On turnips and greens…
Trying to figure out what to do with those turnips and greens? You can eat them by themselves, or you can eat them together. Root vegetables make great accompaniments to their own greens, but they go well with others as well.

For these young turnips, you can eat them sliced with some nice cheese and apples. Snacky dinner.

Roasted roots and greens
2 double-handfuls of cubed turnips, radishes, banana squash (3-4 cups?)
olive oil to coat
1-2 T diced garlic
salt and pepper to taste
spice according to taste (coriander, curry powder, garlic, or chili)
2 double-handfuls of chopped greens (kale, broccoli raab, turnip greens)

Toss the roots and garlic with olive oil and spices. Roast in the oven at 400 for 20 minutes, or until nearly done (depends on how small your cubes are). Mix in the chopped greens, add a little more oil if it is dry, and return to the oven until the greens are tender (5-10 minutes). Serve, maybe with a splash of vinegar.
(This can be made a single dish meal if a can of rinsed garbanzos is added at the start.)
