While helping Annie’s Homegrown choose colors for their new offices in Berkeley, CA, we got excited about a joint promo that would celebrate the missions of both of our companies: healthy food and healthy hues.

Kale is one of our favorite summer vegetables — we are always looking for new and yummy ways to prepare it. In addition to being delicious, the Recipe Color Card below for Asian Kale Salad, is a quick and easy summer dish. We chose THRIVE .03 as a backdrop on this Color Card, as it is a fresh and clean green, a perfect reminder of the warm sun and garden bounty year-round.

Let us know below which YOLO color you’d like to win from one of our beautiful palettes, The Earth’s Color Collection, The Color of Hope and the SPROUT Collection — your comment will enter you to win a quart of YOLO paint in the YOLO color of your choice and a goodie bag of Annie’s Homegrown products (see sample prize below). A random winner will be selected and announced here tomorrow!

As a bonus, the first 100 entries sends $100 to, a non-profit organization that enables gardeners to donate their excess harvest to those in need.

If you haven’t done so already, visit our Facebook page and become a fan to stay in the loop for future contests, design tips, color help and more!

Congrats to yesterday’s winner, Jill Kistner!

    Clay .07 – I’ve been searching for a great muted orange color for my dining room for over a year. I’m on my fourth color in there and the walls are just getting closer with every wrong color!

  2. Dian Hardy says:

    Clay .05 is my choice – I’m living on a vast plain in northern California, crossed in the not-too-distant-past by native Americans on their way to Ocean, and now a teeming, rather suburban (sprawling) city. Everything in my cousin’s house is pale, shades of white. It needs a big bold color somewhere to clear the mind and focus the eye. And I have just the place for it!

  3. Phyllis says:

    I think I will make this for dinner and maybe add some steamed tofo on the side. They make a kale salad at Angeline’s in Sisters, OR but I haven’t tried it yet. Dream 04 is still my color and I’ll be helping my daughter paint her room when I win. Thanks <3

  4. Shane Anderson says:
