1 small clove garlic, minced
2½ teaspoons toasted sesame oil
1½ tablespoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
10 cups packed chopped kale leaves, thick stems removed
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds (optional)
Kosher salt and ground black pepper
In a large bowl, whisk together the garlic, sesame oil, vegetable oil, vinegar and soy sauce. Add the kale and massage it with your hands for 2 to 3 minutes, or until it has become shiny and a little translucent and reduced in volume by one third to one half. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds, then season with salt and pepper. Toss well.
