Sesame Kale Salad

  • Posted by SHFT on September 12, 2011 in Food
  • If you grow veggies, kale is a no-brainer. It's super hardy and easy to grow, and you can grow choice varieties and harvest the fresh leaves when they are young and tasty. We're working on finding the best kale dishes around. This Sesame Kale Salad comes from Erin at Fresh 365, who made it from a bunch of leftover kale from her CSA. It worked out so well, she's going to seek out more to make it again. 

    Sesame Kale Salad
    serves 4 as a side

    1 large bunch kale, stems removed, leaves sliced in thin strips (about 4 c, packed)
    1 garlic clove, minced
    2 t minced fresh ginger
    3 T rice vinegar
    1 T olive oil
    1 T toasted sesame oil
    1 T soy sauce
    2 T minced red onion
    1 carrot, shredded
    1 T sesame seeds, toasted
    salt and pepper, to taste
    Parmesan cheese, to taste (optional)

    In a large bowl, add the kale, garlic, ginger, rice vinegar, olive oil, sesame oil and soy sauce. With your hands, massage the kale leaves, for 1-2 minutes, until the ingredients are well mixed. Add the red onion, carrot and sesame seeds, tossing well. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Let sit at least 20 minutes. If desired, garnish with Parmesan cheese before serving.
