Steps: First prepare the dressing by combining all dressing ingredients. Let dressing sit for 30 min-1 hour (on counter, not in fridge) to let flavors infuse with each other. To prepare the salad, strip kale from stem (like you’re straightening a pipe cleaner) then roll up leaves and chop. Wash greens and add to large bowl with kale. Add in peas, scallions and cheese and top with dressing right before serving.
