Kale Salad with Sesame Dressing
1Tbsp. white sesame seeds
1 lb. kale, steamed and sliced thinly (I use it raw)
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1 Tbsp. plus 1 tsp. vegetable oil, divided
5 large Brussel sprouts, trimmed, halved lengthwise, and thinly sliced crosswise
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 Tbsp. rice vinegar
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
2 tsp. toasted sesame oil
crushed red pepper flakes, for garnish (optional)
1 scallion, thinly sliced, for garnish.
1. In a small skillet, toast sesame seeds over medium-high heat, shaking, until golden brown, about 1 minute. Transfer to plate and set aside to cool.
2. In a large bowl, toss kale with salt and 1 tsp. vegetable oil and rub into kale to soften. Add Brussel sprouts and toss well.
3. In a small bowl, whisk together garlic, vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, and remaining Tbsp. vegetable oil. Pour dressing over greens, add reserved sesame seeds and toss well.
4. Garnish with a pinch of red pepper flakes (optional) and scallions… Serve and enjoy!
