Easy and quick, kale salad comes together with wonderful components and big flavors. The Citrus Miso Vinaigrette is refreshing and full of flavors, it complements the bitterness of the kale.

Miso is a seasoning made from soybeans. It benefits your body by giving it B vitamins and vitamins E and K. Since it’s fermented, it provides your gut with probiotics that support digestion.

Kale, cabbage, and tomatoes make up the salad base to this dish. They give you vitamin A, potassium, and the cabbage helps to lower inflammation. The lycopene in the tomato protects your skin from the sun, so eat up on them in the warmer seasons!

Avocado or olive oil

Honey for a touch of sweetness

arlic, onion powder, cayenne pepper, and Dijon mustard

Finally, it’s flavored with salt and of course, miso!
