Thai Kale Sorghum Salad

This Thai-style peanut dressing makes kale even more nutritionally potent. So think of this vibrant salad, full of nutritional bell-ringers such as whole grain sorghum and protein-rich edamame, as a perfect health-giving bring-your-lunch-to-work option. Since kale can be massaged with dressing a couple of days in advance without going limp, this is also a great make-ahead salad. Soaking sorghum in water for several hours in advance will quicken its cooking time. However, quinoa or millet would serve as stand-ins for sorghum.

Give your kale a massage

Raw kale breaks down and becomes more tender and less bitter tasting when it’s massaged. It also helps distribute the dressing into all of kale’s crevices, so you get peanut flavour in every bite.
