1 cup fresh mint

1 cup walnuts

3 tablespoons peanut butter

3 tablespoons warm water

3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

1 tablespoon pomegranate molasses

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 teaspoon fresh garlic

2 teaspoons fresh ginger

1 teaspoon sesame oil

1 teaspoon dried red chili flakes

Toss the chopped kale, chopped mint, and the walnuts together. Put the rest of the ingredients into a blender and whirl away at high speed until everything is smooth. Toss the dressing with the salad. Devour.
