Amanda's Kids' Lunch from FOod5


The cucumbers, kale, and cherries from our CSA inspired today's lunch. Every weekend, my kids and I go for a run (I run, they scooter) through a local park, and we end our workout at a small local grocery where they sell good bread and chocolates. This past weekend, I picked up a loaf of Hot Bread Kitchen rye, the unsung hero of the sandwich world. 

I spread the rye with cream cheese and laid down a blanket of smoked salmon. I topped this with some shredded kale and pickled onion, and declared it a post-modern Jewish deli sandwich. On the side, I added some cucumbers, which our babysitter had sliced and salted, and fresh cherries, and sent the kids off to wall-climbing and skateboarding camp.
