1. Make the dressing: Whisk together the olive oil, Bachan’s Yuzu Barbecue Sauce, dijon, and rice vinegar. Taste and season with pepper to taste. Set aside.

2. De-stem the kale, then wash, spin dry, and chop into small bite size pieces. Add the kale to a large bowl and season with a sprinkle of salt. Massage the kale by scrunching up handfuls at a time, until the leaves are slightly soft.

3. Add the sliced radishes, apple matchsticks, almonds, and cranberries to the bowl with the kale. Toss well.

4. Dress the salad and toss until everything is evenly coated. Enjoy!
