Miso Kale Salad with Strawberries


1 bunch kale, rinsed

1-2  garlic cloves, minced

1 lemon (juice of)

3-4 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 Tbsp white miso paste

1 cup, strawberries, washed, trimmed and quartered

Prepare kale by folding each leaf in half and ripping out stems (start at the thicker ends). Stack all leaves and roll into cigar shape (don’t worry if “cigar” is not tight or perfect). Chop into thin strips. With a back of knife mash garlic into paste. Transfer garlic to a bowl, add lemon, miso paste and olive oil. Whisk (or use an immersion blender) to get to a creamy consistency – taste for flavor and adjust. Massage the dressing with your hands into kale to ensure that each leaf is covered. Sprinkle with strawberries.

Optional: slivered almonds or hazelnuts make for a great topping addition.
