In summer, vegetable choices abound. But during the cooler months, there are fewer in-season choices -- with the exception of Kale and other dark, leafy greens that thrive in cooler weather.

It is recommended that you store Kale, unwashed, in an air-tight zipped plastic bag for up to five days in the refrigerator.
