Kale & Orange #Salad for #WeeknightSupper

Here we are in the middle of winter and the four of us crave fresh dark greens. Fresh, earthy Lacinato Kale meets that purpose for me.  The texture, the is the perfect winter salad; and I have not made it in a while.  This time - a first for me - I added in a delicious, fresh heirloom orange.  A burst of sushine in the middle of winter.  It not only is pretty but tastes fantastic.  Take a look

Kale & Orange Salad
2 bunches Lacinato Kale, washed & diced
1 med orange, peeled & cut into bite size pieces
2 Tbl toasted Sesame Oil
1-1/2 Tbl Rice Vinegar
1 Tbl Soy Sauce
1 garlic pressed
 2 Tbl Seeds {I added pumpkin seeds}

1. Add garlic to a salad bowl, and mix in oil.  Stir for a minute before adding vinegar, and soy sauce.
    Continue stirring for another minute or so
2. Adjust vinegar, and/or soy sauce before adding the Kale
3. Mix Kale with dressing, add orange pieces, and seeds.  Toss thoroughly until everything is lightly
   coated with dressing; let stand for 30 minutes before serving.
