Raw Kale Salad With an Asian/Middle Eastern Vinaigrette

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by COOKGIRl

We received kale in our CSA box the other day and this salad was the result-quickly constructed yesterday to accompany a tofu main dish. I added half raisins and half barberries but you can substitute another dried fruit either alone or in any combination: raisins/golden raisins, dried figs, dried dates, currants, dried cranberries, barberries, dried cherries. Some elements of the dressing were inspired by a recipe found online although I forgot to bookmark where I found it!

Distinct flavor in the dressing. Went great with Kung Pao Chicken.
