Recipe from Blissful Bites: Spring Kale Salad w/ Sweet Mustard Dressing

In April, the VegCookBook Club will be cooking together from Christy Morgan's cookbook, Blissful Bites. I hope you'll join us!

All you have to do is buy, or borrow a copy of the book, try some recipes, and share your tips, questions and experiences in the comments of the VegCookBook Club blog, in a post on your own blog, or on Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #vegcookbookclub. You can also share your photos and thoughts on Christy's Blissful Chef Facebook page.

To get us started, Christy sent over a recipe for us to try.  Enjoy!

Spring Kale Salad w/ Sweet Mustard Dressing

2 bunches of kale, washed 
1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in half 
1 fennel bulb, thinly sliced 
2 avocados, cubed 
2 tablespoons dulse, for garnish

Sweet Mustard Miso Dressing:
1 lemon, zested and juiced 
2 tablespoons miso 
2 tablespoons stone ground mustard 
2 tablespoons brown rice syrup or maple syrup
2 tablespoons nutritional yeast 
Black pepper, to taste 
Sea salt, to taste 
Filtered water, as necessary

Pull leaves from stalk of kale and tear into small pieces. Thinly slice the stalk. Place in a medium bowl. Blend dressing ingredients together in blender until smooth. Massage the kale with dressing for about 5 minutes. Stir in the rest of salad ingredients and allow to sit for 30 minutes while the flavors meld. Enjoy!
