The Best Kale Salad Ever (with Fennel)

This salad is AMAZING! It is from Karma Chow (www.karmachow.com) and now is my all time FAVORITE way to eat kale. And Fennel. And kale and fennel together.

SALAD:
1 or 2 heads kale, any variety (I like Curly Kale for this salad)
1 bulb fennel, thinly sliced
½ cup cherry tomatoes, quartered or halved
1/4 cup Pine nuts
1/4 cup dried cranberries
Extra Virgin First Cold-Pressed Olive Oil
Sea Salt
Miso Dressing (see recipe below)

Strip kale of stems, tear into small pieces and soak in a bowl for a minute or two to get rid of
any sand or dirt. Drain kale and using a salad spinner, spin the kale dry. Place kale in a large
bowl and drizzle with olive oil and a dash of sea salt. Massage kale with your hands for a few
minutes until it softens. This helps the kale become easier to digest.
Add tomatoes, cranberries, fennel & pinenuts and toss with Miso Dressing.

MISO DRESSING
1 shallot, diced
1 tbl dijon mustard
1 tbl white sweet miso
1/4 c. rice wine vinegar
1 tsp. maple syrup or agave nectar
3 TBL Olive oil

Blend in a Magic Bullet or shake well to mix.
