Chopped kale salad with edamame carrot and avocado recipe



Tamari-Ginger Vinaigrette


  1. Use a chef’s knife to remove the tough ribs from the kale, then discard them. Chop the kale leaves into small, bite-sized pieces and transfer them to a mixing bowl. Sprinkle the kale with a dash of sea salt and use your hands to massage the kale by scrunching up the leaves in your hands and releasing until the kale is a darker green and fragrant. Toss the remaining salad dressing ingredients with the kale.
  2. To make the vinaigrette, whisk together all the ingredients until emulsified. Toss the dressing with the salad and serve.


Yields 2 enormous salads or 4 medium.
Storage suggestions: Leftovers will keep well in the fridge for a day or two.
*Make it gluten free: Tamari is a gluten-free Japanese soy sauce that has a flavor I love and is readily available at stores. If you want your salad to be gluten-free, be sure to pick a gluten-free soy sauce.
