Who knew two of my favorite things would come together in one weekend?
I volunteered to help at this year’s Electric City Comic Con so I knew I would be immersed in comics and in the company of folks that enjoy them.
While there I found an artist who did cooking comics, along with cats and NYC themed books! Her name is Alisa Harris and she can be found at www.cookingupcomics.com
I had to buy and then recreate one of her adorably illustrated recipes.
Behold my Purple Kale Salad with Oranges…
Full disclosure, I did use Mandarin Oranges, French Shallots and Key Lime juice in place of fresh orange segments red onion, and regular lime juice.
It still came out both lovely and tasty!
