One of the most common ‘Ae-mono’, a type of Japanese salad, dressings is called ‘Sanbai-zu’ which is made with Soy Sauce, Rice Vinegar and Sugar. Based on this dressing, I added Peanut Butter to create this Kale salad. My husband and son don’t like Kale, but they enjoy this salad even though Kale is uncooked. Interesting…
