Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Rinse and dry kale. Trim and discard tough stems. Stack the leaves, then cut crosswise into 1/2-inch strips.

  • Place a steamer basket in a large pot with a tight-fitting lid. Add water to just below the basket. Bring the water to boiling over medium-high heat. Place the kale in the steamer basket. Cover and steam for about 10 minutes or until tender, tossing the leaves once or twice. Remove the steamer basket with the kale and transfer the kale to a bowl.

  • Combine vinegar, oil, lime peel, lime juice, miso, ginger, and garlic in a small bowl; whisk to combine. Drizzle the dressing mixture over the kale. Toss to combine. If desired, serve the kale topped with chopped nuts.
