Wasabi Ginger Kale Slaw



This week girlchef is hosting BSI (Blogger Secret Ingredient) and the secret ingredient is Greens!
I had something completely different planned but at the last minute I changed my mind. My Husband's family came over for Father's Day and brought baby back ribs to grill so I thought this recipe was a better choice.



  • 3 cups finely sliced kale
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onion
  • 1/2 cup carrot, cut into matchstick sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1/3 cup wasabi mayo
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • garnish with Eden Shake (sesame seed and sea vegetable seasoning blend)




Wilt the kale in a small amount of boiling water. This will only take a minute so watch carefully!
Remove from heat, drain and rinse immediately in cold water.



Place the veggies in into a bowl. In another small bowl, combine the wasabi mayo and rice vinegar. Toss with the veggies and garnish with Eden Shake.



I really enjoyed the flavor and texture in this slaw. If you like slaw with a kick, then you will love this!

I really like Kale. I have a summer kale recipe that I need to make soon! Thanks for reminding me.

This is pretty, with the tomato and carrots giving contrast of color to the greens.I'm sure it was a great side dish to the baby back ribs.

Happy father's day to your hubby.

Looks Wonderful! I like "anything" with a kick and I love wasabi!!!

Tiffany said...

My husband would love everything about that. I've never cooked with kale before. I guess I'm not a greens person, but maybe I need to change my ways.

I love the colors in this! Do you get your 'Eden shake' at your normal grocery store or a specialty shop?

I love the idea of a Kale slaw and the wasabi and ginger flavors sound incredible! Great recipe!

Kathy B! said...

This is different, and the presentation is fantastic. I love it!

And wasabi? I like that... this is definitely going in the "must try" file...

Lisa said...

I love the idea here! The flavors sound like a fantastic combination. Mayonnaise, however, is not my thing. I am thinking that I might get around that with an oil based dressing and still enjoy the kale, ginger and wasabi combination. Inspiring.

Katherine Aucoin said...

Kim what a delicious way to prepare kale. It looks gorgeous too!

MaRiN said...

Looks delicious as always!

Cathy said...

Mmmm, this looks good. Love the wasabi mayo in the dressing. I need to use kale more. It is so good for us.

teresa said...

How yummy! I love the deep green color, this looks wonderful!

Reeni♥ said...

This looks really good, what a great idea to use Asian flavors!

My Carolina Kitchen said...

Gorgeous slaw. I don't use kale very often - this makes me think I might be missing something. Anything with wasabi and ginger is ok in my book. Love that girlichef too.

I'm always running out of ideas when it comes to kale, I usually throw it in a soup but this dish really highlights in in a delicious way :)!
