Can I get that recipe?

Kale, Carrot & Walnut Salad ala Vampiregran

Those of you who know me personally know where I work.  You also know that the deli there is pretty popular.  We sell a lot of salads, especially when the weather warms up and everyone is dashing off to the nearby park for an impromptu picnic.  The kale salad is probably the most popular salad going these days or at least a close second.  The Mac n Cheese salad may have to step down as the favorite as the kale serges ahead.

My version of the kale salad is a bit more spicy than what we sell at work.  I always like to ramp up the spices, ya’ know, give it some kick and pizzazz!  So, without further ado, here is “that recipe”.

Kale, Carrot & Walnut Salad

 

1 large bunch dark green curly kale

4 large carrots, peeled and grated

½ cup chopped walnuts

 

¼ cup Veganaise*

1 tablespoon tamari

2 tablespoons rice vinegar

1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

¼ teaspoon cayenne

½ teaspoon ground cumin

1 medium clove garlic, minced

 

Remove stems from kale.  Slice kale into thin ribbons.  In a large bowl, combine kale, grated carrots, and walnuts.

In a smaller bowl combine remaining ingredients.  Whisk until smooth.  Pour over kale mixture and toss to coat.

This salad holds well for up to three days in the refrigerator.

* Veganaise is a vegan mayonnaise.  You could substitute regular mayonnaise, if you prefer.
