This is one of my favourite ways to eat greens. I've made it with spinach, kale and today I'm trying swiss chard. I discovered this simple dish while visiting the family home of my friend Patty. As I wolfed down these vinegary-sesame greens, I quizzed her dad on how to make them. He was very amused when I pulled out my little notebook to write down his instructions. This dish is traditionally made with spinach but I use any greens I have on hand. I find kale tends to hold up well, especially if you want leftovers for the next day and I was also quite pleased with the chard today.
Roughly chop and steam a bunch of greens, do not overcook. Drain or squeeze out excess water.
Mix the following ingredients and then toss with the greens:
3 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons vinegar
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon (or more to taste) sesame seeds
You can adjust the amount of dressing to fit your greens. Yummy served with steamed rice!
