Radish and Kale Salad
Radish and Kale Salad with Ana N.36
2 bunches radishes, greens trimmed, grated (the shredding disk in a food processor works very well for this)
1 large bunch lacinato kale leaves, thick parts of stem removed, cut into thin strips
2 Tbsp lemon juice
Honey, to taste
Sprinkle the radishes with a small handful of salt and mix well. Allow to sit for 15 minutes.
In a separate bowl massage the kale with a small handful of salt. Let rest, the massage again every 5 minutes until noticeably softer, two or three times total.
Rinse both the kale and radishes with plenty of cool water, then squeeze dry by hand. It's ok for them to be a bit damp, just not dripping wet.
Mix the tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, honey, and 2 Tbsp Ana in a bowl, stirring well, add water until you reach a thin dressing consistency.
Toss this dressing with the radishes and kale until well mixed, then top with additional Ana spice.
Variations & Ideas:
• Great with sweet add-ins like raisins, shredded apple, or cubes of poached pear.
• If your radish greens are in good shape, you can salt them as a quick pickle and add them to stir fries, or to this salad if you enjoy the bitterness.
• Keep any leftovers in a well-chilled portion of the refrigerator. Makes a great garnish for soups and long braises where you want to add fresh vegetable flavor and earthiness.
• Great as a topping on oven baked flatbread. The radishes caramelize, the kale crisps, and the tahini and Ana perfume the air.
