Easy Miso Tahini Ginger Dressing

Lacinto kale, cabbage, and carrot slaw topped with red peppers and cucumbers. Good idea, but a big fail!

I was craving a miso tahini type dressing to, well, um, dress up a kale slaw I was making, so I whipped out a little mason jar and added some ingredients I had on hand. The sauce was delicious, the slaw on the other hand was overly bitter. I had never eaten lacinto kale raw before. I will never do that again. Cooked, it is great, and I prefer it over the curly leaf variety, but raw... blech! Tastes like grass. I learned that it is pretty bitter juiced as well. Live and learn as they say. Now for the good part of this experiment, the easy miso tahini ginger dressing!

The yummy dressing! Just shake it up in a mason jar!

  1. This dressing sounds delicious!! I found that lactino kale makes great kale chips-they're fun because i leave the leaves whole and hold the stem to eat them

  2. i love all the colors!! it looks so fresh and lovely!
