I hope you all are ready for one of the easiest meals you’ll ever make.

The other week I was making dinner so I just threw this together, added some grilled teriyaki chicken breast and viola one of my favorite salads was created and not even intentionally. I love it when things like that happen, don’t you?

The base of this salad is made by finely shredding kale. I just chop it with a knife, but you can use a mandoline, shredder or food processor if you prefer. You could buy some of the ingredients like the carrots, red and green cabbage pre-shredded if you prefer. Feel free to add in some leafy green lettuce or romaine to this salad too, I promise you couldn’t mess this up if you tried.

The most time-consuming part of the dressing is peeling and grating the ginger, which takes about 2 minutes total. I use a metal spoon to peel of the papery skin and a microplane grater to grate it. Then, it’s simply a matter of adding all of the dressing ingredients to a small jar, shaking things up, and pouring it on.

Enjoy!

  1. Mix all the salad dressing ingredients in a mason jar, place the lid on and shake until well combined. I like to let it sit for a couple of hours in the fridge before, but it is good either way.
