Miso Celery Kale Salad

Everyone is always on the hunt for the perfect summer salad. Last Saturday morning, I was having coffee with a friend and saw her mother prepare for lunch. She said, "Does anyone know a good miso dressing recipe??"

I immediately jumped in and started improvising and mixing up all ingredients. I then went home and created the same concoction and the result was bursting with flavor!
