Kale Brussel Sprouts & Kumquat Salad
We moved to Miami from NYC and all I could think of is what new interesting salad combinations I could have Thomas make for us. We then realized over a salad lunch , if you follow our insta @thomasfuchsdecor you will see or daily homemade lunches, that our tableware line needed a Salad Set.
Thomas alerted our factory immediately and "voila" we now have a salad set to serve our salads available here on our site. Thomas loved the sizes and proportions of our bowls so much he ordered two sets from the warehouse for himself to use at home.
For those of you who know me , you know I have been obsessed with Kumquat trees. I think they are a great option of brining color and live into your home. I went on a hunt for salad he could make with our home/apt grown kumquat trees 34th floors in the air.
We always loved kale so much since we were growing it in our beach house garden so I thought a great combination would be combining our kumquats with the kale. The texture of the kale being crunchy and the bitter sweet kumquats that burst in your mouth make me feel like we are in Italy in our new home sitting outside in the summer sun while faint noises of all our friends kids who come to say with us billow in the background and "Mancode Radio" (an amazing internet radio station based in Greece ) is playing in the background.
