Winter Detox Salad with Kale and Miso Dressing

Image

Since Thanksgiving was last week and the 30˚ weather is keeping us indoors, we’ve both been feeling pretty guilty. Then we pulled up the documentary Food Matters on Netflix and got inspired to do some more detoxing. Even though we always try to include a salad with whatever main course we’re eating, we’ve been going big with the butter and cream lately and thought a healthy kale salad would be a good antidote to our winter sluggishness. This salad is completely raw and with a healthy fish like black cod or salmon, it’s a dinner that really fills you up without the dairy or carbs. Now how long do you think we can keep this up before we go back to the dark side? (hint: see below)

Dressing:
1/4 cup white miso
2 tsp. soy sauce
2 tsp. toasted sesame oil
2 tbsp. rice wine vinegar
1/4 cup white wine, reduced to 2 tbsp.
1 tbs. minced ginger
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 tsp. honey

Salad:
1/2 head of kale
1/4 cucumber
1/2 red pepper
1/4 carrot, peeled into thin slices
1/2 fuji or cameo apple
3-4 mushrooms

About 1 hour…
