Miso massaged kale

I'll be honest. I'm not a big kale fan. I got sucked into eating it because it's so good for me and I have had kale salad that blew my socks off (like this one). But when it's just sauteed or better MASSAGED kale that I prepare I usually don't like it. Kale chips are fine but so disappointing in quantity seeing a whole head of kale disappear. For kale juices, I like to add a whole lotta lemons and apples and quite honestly unless it's really well prepared my digestive tract often doesn't love kale raw.

Anyhow... I love Asian food and miso in particular. So I thought I would make this miso kale with a new spin. With the dressing below and shelled edamame!

I bought Miso paste and massaged the salad with it and some other ingredients. And the result wasn't half bad if I do say so myself. :)

Try for yourself:

3 tbs miso

1/3 cup EVOO

1-2 cloves garlic minced

1/3 cup grated parmesan (optional)

3 tbs lemon juice or rice vinegar (optional - see how sour the salad is with the miso before adding more acidity)

ENJOY!
