Romano Kale Salad

Romano Kale Salad
I grew up in a family that put strong cheeses: Romano, Parmesan, Provolone, etc,  on everything. I am always experimenting to recreate that taste. This salad tastes like it has Romano cheese sprinkled on it. I don’t think it is any one ingredient but just dumb luck in finding a combination that simulates that taste.

1 bunch of raw lacinato (dino) kale torn into medium pieces
2 steamed carrots
5 thickly sliced raw Crimini mushrooms
½ cup of tops of raw  green or spring onions

2 tablespoons chickpea miso
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons coconut aminos
1 tablespoon coconut vinegar
1 tablespoon minced ginger marinated in raw apple cider vinegar*
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove pressed garlic or ¼ teaspoon granulated garlic

Toss salad with dressing and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons hemp seeds. Serve. Enjoy.

*I take about a pound of ginger, mince it in the food processor and cover it with raw apple cider vinegar in a glass jarand refrigerate it.
This is a great thing to have on hand.
