  • ½ cup raw cashews
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • ½ cup chopped poblano pepper (about ½ of one medium pepper)
  • 2 tsp. white miso paste
  • 1½ Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • ¾ tsp. granulated garlic
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt, divided
  • ½ tsp. freshly grated black pepper
  • 1 large (or 2 small) bunch lacinato kale, roughly chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¾ cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • ⅓ cup shaved radish
  • 1 ripe avocado, sliced thin
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh chives
  1. Place cashews in a bowl and cover with 1 cup hot water. Let sit 1 hour.
  2. While cashews soak, prepare boiled eggs by bringing a saucepan of water to a boil over medium-high. Carefully lower eggs into water using a slotted spoon. Cook 7 ½ minutes, maintaining a gentle boil. Transfer to an ice bath and chill until eggs are just slightly warm, about 2 minutes. Peel eggs and cut into slices.
  3. Drain cashews, but reserve soaking liquid. Transfer cashews to a food processor (or blender) along with poblano pepper, miso paste, lemon juice, onion powder, garlic, ¼ tsp. of the salt, black pepper, and ½ cup of the reserved soaking liquid. Blend on medium speed, scraping down sides with a spatula and adding more soaking liquid as needed, until dressing is smooth, about 1 to 2 minutes. Using spatula, transfer cashew dressing to a small bowl.
  4. Place kale in a large bowl. Add olive oil and remaining ¼ tsp. salt and use hands to massage oil into greens until they begin to soften. Leave kale in bowl or transfer to a serving platter. Add tomatoes and radish; toss to combine. Top with egg and avocado slices and drizzle dressing overtop. Scatter chives overtop.
