Wilted Kale and Summer Squash Salad with Parsley Gremolata

Summer may be officially over, but summer squash is still available!  Make the most of this late season squash by pairing it with everyone’s favorite superfood, Kale!  Top it all with a zesty and green parsley gremolata and you have yourself a winning dish.  Make it at home for a healthy meal or bring it to the next dinner party you attend – that’s what I did, and it drew rave reviews!

Gremolata is a condiment or sauce made from chopped herbs, typically parsley with garlic and lemon juice.

  3. Finely chop garlic and parsley and mix together adding lemon juice
  4. Dress kale and squash with parsley sauce.
