Use regular curly kale here for its light, springy texture. Nutritional yeast, that '60s health-food throwback, adds umami complexity, but if you prefer, you can omit it and up the other seasonings.

How to Make It

Step 1

Toast sesame seeds in a frying pan over medium heat, stirring often, until golden, 3 to 5 minutes. Scrape into a small bowl.

Step 2

Whisk garlic, 2 tbsp. nutritional yeast, the soy sauce, sugar, vinegar, and sesame oil in a large bowl. Add kale and red onion and toss to coat. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, toss again, and serve. Add more yeast if you like.

Step 3

*Find nutritional yeast at natural-foods and well-stocked grocery stores.

My go to kale salad!

July 18, 2015
This is so good! It's been my go to kale salad for about two years now. Most of the time I don't have nutritional yeast, so I make it without and it tastes just fine. It's better with, but only by a smidge. I also put more soy sauce and vinegar in it cause I like it heavily dressed, but that's just a personal preference. Put some raw mushrooms in it and you have a delicious and healthy salad. Superb!
