Will Run For Kale Party Salad With Ginger Dressing

Kale Party Salad With Ginger Dressing

Kale party anyone?  I needed a kale party after spending an evening dress shopping.  My shopping partner wasn't too keen on the kale party.  She might have said something about it being the equivalent of a 5 am, shift work, double crust sandwich kind of party.  Apparently not everyone loves kale.

On that note, why must sales people insist on asking how you are doing while standing outside your change room door just as you attempt to silently thrash your way out of the fancy party dress that you are trapped in? 

 If you were fine you would have stepped out of the change room with dress in hand.  Clearly, you are not fine.

Instead you are inside of the change room with one arm in your dress.  The other arm is plastered close to your body and stretched out above your head trying to manoeuvre a sharp object out of your purse so that you can cut yourself out of the dress if need be.  

Note to self: remember body glide when dress shopping.

Kale Party Salad

1 bunch kale ( approximately 8C)
3 C colourful coleslaw (green cabbage, carrots & red cabbage)
1/2 red pepper thinly sliced
Sliced Strawberries (optional garnish)
black & white sesame seeds (optional garnish)

Wash kale & remove stems.  Tear into small pieces.  Add colourful coleslaw, & red pepper.

Ginger Dressing
(approximately 1/2 C)

1/4 C rice wine vinegar
2 T olive oil
1 tsp sesame oil
1T Bragg (or soy sauce)
1 T chopped fresh ginger
1 clove garlic chopped
1 T agave nectar (or honey)

In a small frying pan heat olive oil.  Add garlic & ginger cooking until fragrant.  Remove from heat add sesame oil.  Slowly incorporate rice wine vinegar, Bragg and agave nectar into olive oil mixture.

Allow dressing to cool slightly and coat kale (you will likely have extra dressing).  Garnish salad with sliced strawberries (or tangerines) and sesame seeds.

oh, kale!
