Ingredients

Salad

  • 1 purple kale
  • ½ rainbow chard
  • ½ orange capsicum
  • 300 g black grapes, seedless
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste

Dressing

  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup white miso paste
  • ¼ tsp ginger, grated
  • ¼ tsp soy sauce

Instructions

Salad

  • Rip the leafy part of the kale off the rib. Discard the rib. Place the leaf in a medium sized bowl, add 1 tbsp of olive oil and massage the leaves for 10 minutes until it softens.
  • Wash the Rainbow chard thoroughly. Cut it diagonally from the stem to the leaves. Bring a medium sized of water to the boil. Add the rainbow chard in for 2 minutes. Remove and run under cold running water to stop the cooking process. Pat dry and set aside.
  • Wash and pat dry the black seedless grapes. Cut them in half or thirds, depending on how big they are.
  • Dice the orange capsicum into small pieces.

Dressing

  • Peel and grate the ginger to yield ¼ tsp.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add mayonnaise, white miso paste, ginger, soy sauce and juice of ½ lemon.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Mix until it is well combined.

Assembly

  • In a large mixing bowl, add the dressing in with all the other ingredients and toss well.
  • Place the mixed salad onto a large platter and serve.

Notes

  • You can substitute purple kale for green curly kale. Green kale will also need to be massaged.
  • This salad will transport well if you’re bringing it to a party but only mix the dressing in with the ingredients when it’s time to eat.
  • Substitute the soy sauce with tamari to make this salad gluten free.
  • You can use green or red seedless grapes if you’re unable to find black grapes. Although the green grapes won’t be as sweet.
  • The orange capsicum provides additional colour. Other coloured capsicum will of course be ok to use.
