  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, lightly crushed

Take a break from the standard kale salad.

By Andrew Zimmern

I tasted a kale salad made by a monastic order in Detroit once, they were selling it at the farmers’ market there, seemed better than a bake sale if you ask me. The miso dressing was so perfect that I made the salad the next week, using trial and error to approximate what I had tasted from the monks. If you like a sweet aspect to your miso dressing, add a little more sugar or Golden Syrup.

Instructions

In a large bowl, toss the kale with the lemon juice and a generous pinch of salt.

In a small bowl, whisk the vinegar with the sesame seeds, miso and sugar. Gradually whisk in the oil. Add the dressing to the kale and toss well. Scatter the scallions and pistachios on top and serve.
