kale salad

Yi Er San Vinaigrette


This is a variation on my go-to recipe for a quick Asian-inspired dressing.  My favorite salad for this dressing is kale (massage it with salt for optimum texture).  You can make it extra festive by adding carrot ribbons and/or cucumber.  When kale’s in season, I’ll make a salad like this a couple times a week.  Is it summer yet?


3 Tablespoons rice vinegar
3 Tablespoons sesame oil
2 Tablespoons roasted sesame seeds
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 Tablespoon hoisin sauce
1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger

Whisk all ingredients together. Toss with vegetables of choice.
