Emerald Kale Salad

Are you swimming in kale and hungry for a recipe? This delicious sesame-kale salad was shared and devoured at our latest Lake County Gardens Gathering Potluck by one of our Highlands Senior Center gardeners. Thanks Susan!

Emerald Kale Salad

2 heads Kale (curly is the hardiest, but whichever kind appeals)
1/4 cup olive oil
3T sesame oil (can use toasted or non)
1/4 cup soy sauce or tamari
1/4 of a lemon, squeezed (or more, to taste)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup sesame seeds, toasted
fresh ginger, minced (to taste)

Wash kale and break into bite-sized pieces. Steam until lightly crisp. (If you steam too much, go easy on the liquid ingredients).
Place kale in large bowl.
In small bowl, blend all dressing ingredients together.
Pour over kale and stir until everything is evenly coated.
