This is great way to incorporate kale into your meals. We love the unique flavor that this dressing adds to kale. This recipe is from Andrea Nakayama.

Dressing Ingredients

4 TBSP olive oil

3 TBSP fresh squeezed orange juice

2 tsp lemon juice

2 TBSP light miso

1 clove garlic, crushed

1-2 tsp yacon or coconut nectar

1 1/4 tsp onion powder

1/4 tsp Dijon mustard or pinch of mustard powder

1/8 tsp iodized sea salt

Pinch cayenne pepper (optional)

Salad Ingredients

1 bunch kale, de-stemmed

1/4 head cabbage, shredded

2 tomatoes, seeded and chopped

1/4 cup red onion, thinly julienned (optional)


In a medium bowl, combine oil, juices, miso, garlic, yacon or coconut nectar, onion powder, mustard, salt, and cayenne pepper. Whisk to a smooth consistency and set aside.

Chiffonade the kale into thin strips and massage with a small amount of salt to soften the kale. In a large bowl, toss the kale with the dressing and massage for three minutes. Add cabbage, tomatoes, and red onion. Serve.
