Kale Salad with Miso Ginger Dressing
For an explosion of flavors in every bite, you need to try this kale salad recipe! It features several of the ingredients found in SGSY shots, including ginger, orange, and honey, AND it’s nutritionally balanced with protein, fat, and carbs.
Plus, if you haven’t used miso in your cooking yet, you’re missing out. Miso is a fermented paste, usually made from soybeans, that adds amazing umami flavor to dishes. And since it’s fermented, it contains probiotics. You can prep this kale salad in advance for easy lunches throughout the week, but it’s easy enough to whip on a busy workday too.
