Mandy's Sesame Kale Salad

Kale is a super food.

No, it's a super-dee-duper food.

But, it can be daunting to a novice. So, if you're looking for an easy, yummy and versatile recipe to try the stuff, here's a good one.

Our friend Mandy, who farms with us brought this gem to our CSA member appreciation dinner last year. It was a huge hit, maybe even the star of the show (especially for all our members who were at that point, a little sick of Kale and looking for something new to try with the 10 pounds piling up in their fridges.)

Sesame Greens Salad

1 bunch of greens of your choice, chopped - boiled until crisp tender
1/2 onion, chopped
1/8 c rice vinegar
1/8 c soy sauce
1 t sesame oil
1 t garlic chili paste
1 T sesame seeds toasted

Pull your greens out of the water and drain thoroughly. In a bowl big enough for the greens, mix your sauces together, and add the warm greens and onion. Toss. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and refrigerate.

Note from Mandy: I have been known to add roasted garlic to the sauce mixture and also sweet chili sauce.
