The Orange-Miso Salad Dressing and the fresh oranges really mellow out the kale in this salad.
Makes 4 servings.
2 large bunches kale, stemmed and coarsely chopped (about 8 cups)
1 15-ounce can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
¾ cup Orange-Miso Salad Dressing (below), more or less to taste
1 large orange, peeled and sectioned
1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
- Combine everything in a large bowl and toss to mix well.
- To serve, divide the salad among four plates.
I like to let my kale salad sit for an hour to let the salad dressing mellow out the slightly chewy, slightly bitter kale. Alternatively, you can use the less bitter, more tender baby kale greens (if you can find them) or spinach if you are in a hurry.
