In a large bowl, toss kale with the olive oil, salt and lemon juice and rub into kale to soften.
In a small bowl, whisk together the garlic, olive oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, and ginger until well combined.
Add the red peppers to the salad. Pour the dressing over the salad, sprinkle with sesame seeds (if using), and toss well. Serve and enjoy!
If making this dressing for a salad that doesn’t require “a massage” beforehand (meaning anything other then kale), then I would add the 1 tablespoon olive oil and freshly squeezed lemon juice to the dressing ingredients. I’ll leave it up to you whether you want to add extra salt.
This salad is great prepared in advance, so go ahead and let it sit while you prepare the rest of your meal.
