“Hey there, kale breath. What’s for lunch?” laughed Kim.
Evie rolled her eyes and motioned to her leftover potato kale salad with a side of cherry tomatoes. Best idea she ever had; mixing in kale to add nutrients to a high carb dish.
At that moment, Jorge from sales strutted into the office kitchen, flashing his beamer at the girls as he made way toward the coffee machine. Evie had always had a crush on Jorge. He was so dashing and confident, as only the top-earning sales associate could be. He knew it too, he knew all the interns liked to watch him. And he was good at putting on a show.
Swaying to the slow rhythm of his spoon stirring the coffee, he turned to give them a rear view, just for fun. Evie couldn’t stand it any more, “Jorge—hon—do you need help with your coffee? Cuz you know, Kim specializes in cups of all sizes.” Kim kicked her under the table. If anyone had a bigger crush on Jorge than Evie, it was Kim.
Jorge planted himself spread eagle at the table facing them and proceeded to sip his brew, slowly. Kim flushed redder than Evie’s tomatoes then dashed to the ladies room.
“So, Eeeeeevie. Don’t you have a new client to show around the office today?” The sound of his velvet voice alone could lube a rusted out 1956 Chevy but combine it with the sexy eyebrow gymnastics and none of the girls could sit still.
Startled, Evie realized the new client was due in 5 minutes and she had yet to assemble the welcome kit. She started for the door.
“Hey wait! Do you want some floss?”
“You’ve got kale in your teeth.”
Potato Kale Salad
- 6 medium potatoes, chopped
- 2 cups chopped raw kale, stems removed
- 2 spring onions, chopped
- 2 celery stalks, chopped
- 1 bunch of fresh dill, chopped, use as much as you want
- 3/4-1 cup vegan mayonaise
- 1 T. yellow mustard
- 1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
- garlic salt and pepper to taste (regular salt also ok)
While chopped potatoes are boiling, mix the mayo, mustard and relish in a small bowl. Put all the other chopped ingredients except the kale in a big bowl.
When the potatoes are just about done, add the chopped kale to the boiling water and stir. Before the kale turns army green, drain potatoes and kale then add to the large bowl with chopped veggies. Fold to mix. Fold in the mayo mixture and season with garlic salt and pepper. Serve.
