Wilted Kale Salad with Sesame Miso Recipe
Heather Nicholds, C.H.N.

For those of you who didn’t think you could like kale raw, try this wilted kale salad with sesame-miso dressing!

Massaging it before putting it in a salad, steaming or stir-frying it softens the kale enough to make it both delicious and much more easily digested. Kale is full of antioxidants, calcium and other nutrients, so it is a good thing to get more of in your diet.

Sesame-Miso Dressing

  • 1 Tbsp miso, any variety
  • 2 Tbsp brown rice or apple cider vinegar
  • 1-2 tsp brown rice syrup
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil


  • 3 leaves of kale, chopped and massaged
  • 3 large mushrooms, sliced and marinated
  • 1 avocado, chopped


  1. Make the dressing first by stirring all 4 ingredients together until smooth. Set this aside to allow the flavors to combine.
  2. The mushrooms can be prepared up to 5 hours in advance by putting the slices in a covered container, sprinkling some sea salt on them and shaking them with the cover on. This will draw moisture out of the mushrooms and they will wilt and soften.
  3. Prepare the kale when you are ready to serve by chopping it up, sprinkling some sea salt over it and massaging it until it releases some moisture and starts to wilt. Add the avocado and mushrooms, then toss with the dressing.
