kale with orange miso sesame dressing

DSC04395 Remember that kale salad we had at the Monkeypod Kitchen?

I think I came pretty close to re-creating it.

Here's what I did...

I picked most of the kale on my lanai and julienned it.

Then I made this dressing...

Orange Miso Sesame Dressing Adapted from Down to Earth's recipes
1.5 tablespoon white miso
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon orange zest
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar (with honey)*
pepper

Mix everything well.

NOTES: *my vinegar had honey already added to it, if you are using straight apple cider vinegar, you may want to sweeten your dressing up with 2-3 teaspoons agave.

After putting a couple handfuls of the kale in a bowl, I drizzled a tablespoon of the dressing and I tossed everything.

For toppings, I added some mandarin oranges, thinly sliced red onion, roasted macadamia nuts and dried cherries.

I liked this there was sweet-sour, crunch from the nuts...I hope to make this again.

This looks great Kat. We've got about 2 dozen kale plants growing at different stages, so will let the Missus check out this recipe.
