Buzz Savories Power Salad

October in Nebraska, and I feel the vigor of autumn in the air. Vigor shows its powerful self in the vegetables that grow easily and happily in late fall. The Red Russian Kale, Lettuce Salad Mixes, Spinach, and Brussel sprouts – each filled with deep energy, enthusiasm, and vitality.

Today I’m making a Power Salad with vigorous vegetables supplied by Nebraska growers and our fine, local grocers.

I sent in my order of fresh lettuces, spinach and kale to the Nebraska Food Co-op. The Co-op contracts with Nebraska growers then distributes fresh, natural fruits, vegetables, meats, baked goods, and dairy grown and processed by Nebraska farmers and producers. We buy on-line, and our order is delivered to a convenient location in our town for pick-up.

In October I munch on a Nebraska grown Power Salad of Red Russian Kale, a Lettuce Salad Mix, Spinach, Brussel sprouts vine-fresh apples, and cashew nuts.  Please join me.

For me to recommend a recipe for you, the recipe must satisfy 3 requirements – 1)  amazing flavor 2) simple to make 3) easy clean-up.  The Power Salad Salad satisfies the standards as listed, and even better it satisfies my goals for well being.

The Power Salad’s  hearty greens are dressed with a savory dressing. Buzz Savories Spicy Beer mustard takes a bow  since the play of flavors could not perform as delightfully with any other mustard.

Mix your salad greens and brussels sprouts, cover and refrigerate. To serve, drizzle the dressing over the greens, toss in the apple slices and cashews and toss again.
