a jar of rowse runny honey


A healthy, colourful salad packed with the goodness of raw kale. Ready cooked grains are available in pouches in most supermarkets and just need a quick blast in the microwave, meaning this salad can be on the table in less than 10 minutes. You could swap the multigrain for 250g cooked brown rice, quinoa or barley, or any mixture of these. You can also try chickpeas, haricot beans or black beans in place of the cannellini beans. This salad keeps well overnight in the fridge so is ideal for a packed lunch. To prepare kale rinse it thoroughly then pull the curly leaves away from the tough stems and discard the tough stems.
