Mixed Greens, Olives & Peppers

chard, kale, red peppers, hungarian wax olives, kalamata olives, botija olives, whole food nutrition, An unusual but fun flavor combination awaits you with this unique dish inspired by an end-of-summer Alaska garden. Choose your olives—the strong Peruvian Botija olives or the milder but rich Kalamata olives are both amazing. Add pungent and colorful peppers like yellow Hungarian wax peppers, or Annaheim peppers. And then choose whatever greens you have; this makes a delightful kale recipe, or chard, spinach, or mix them up.

Looking for a complete, fast, family-pleasing meal? Just add a healthy protein like free-range organic chicken tenders (shown) or even a sprouted “pseudograin” like buckwheat groats.
