Yield: 3 Cups (2 -3 Servings)
  • ½ bunch kale, de-stemmed (about 1 cup packed) and cut into thin ribbons (chiffonade)
  • 1/8 head cabbage, shredded (1 ¼ cups)
  • 2 tablespoon red onion, finely julienned
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon light miso
  • ½ tablespoon lemon juice, fresh squeezed
  • ½ tablespoon orange juice, fresh squeezed
