From the Test Kitchen

Pickling mustard seeds is an easy way to add exciting texture and piquant flavor to weeknight cooking. Here, we’re pickling a combination of brown and yellow seeds in honey and apple cider vinegar, then stirring them together with a bit of sour cream to make a zesty sauce for our kale and roasted potato salad. (You may receive green curly, dark green lacinato, or red kale.) We’re also serving some of the sauce on the side, so you can drizzle as much as you’d like over the seared salmon fillets.
