* You can use literally any salad dressing you’d like as long as it has some fat and some acidity (including store-bought dressings). My favorite is a creamy caesar dressing (for that, I use ⅓ cup), but it also works great with a simple vinaigrette (for that, I use ¼ cup). Use your judgment about how much to add—it’ll vary depending on how big your bunch is and how flavorful your dressing is.
Here’s the vinaigrette I used for the kale in the photos (just whisk everything together):
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp mayo (can use vegan mayo or omit)
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp mustard
1 tsp maple syrup
1 garlic clove, crushed through a press
1 big pinch salt
** Only use the cheese/nooch if your dressing goes with it. Alternatively, you could use sesame seeds, fennel seeds, or even cumin seeds—really anything that goes with your dressing of choice.
