Lightly cooked greens add colour and freshness to a meal and this dressing enhances them perfectly.
1 large bunch of kale or spring greens
Pinch of Clearspring Traditional Sea Salt
1/2 medium carrot, cut into fine matchsticks
2tsp Clearspring Toasted Sesame Oil
1tbsp Clearspring Brown Rice Vinegar
1tbsp plus 1tsp Clearspring Shoyu Soya Sauce
1tbsp sesame seeds, toasted
1. Wash the greens and remove any tough stems from the leaves. Fill a large pot half full with water and bring to the boil. Add the sea salt and as many whole leaves as will comfortably fit. Boil the greens until just tender (about 7 minutes for kale, a little less for other greens). When the greens are tender, immediately remove them from the pot and plunge them into a bowl of cold water to stop the cooking and hold the colour. Drain, gently squeeze out excess water, and thinly slice. (If the leaves are very large, cut in half lengthwise first.) Cook remaining leaves.
2. Boil the carrots for 2-3 minutes, remove, and cool under running water. Drain and set aside.
3. In a small bowl, prepare the dressing by whisking together the sesame oil, vinegar, and shoyu.
3. In a mixing bowl, toss the greens and carrots with the dressing. Place the mixture in a serving bowl, garnish with sesame seeds, and serve.
