Ambassador of the Lowcountry at the SC State Fair

Ambassador of the Lowcountry – Chef Brian Waters & assistant Michael Jones aka “Skillet” demonstrating a Marinated Tuscan Kale Salad recipe with Shaved Baby Carrots, Farro, Crispy Shallots & Ginger Sesame Vinaigrette at the South Carolina State Fair!

Ambassador of the Lowcountry | Chef Brian Waters | SC State Fair Food Demonstration | Saltus River Grill

For the Salad:
- 1 Bunch of Tuscan Kale, large stems removed & cut into 2 inch ribbons
-6 baby carrots or 1 large carrot, shaved very thin with a peeler
-1 cup of cooked farro
-2 large shallots, peeled & sliced very thin
-1 cup all purpose flour seasoned with salt & pepper
-1 quart vegetable frying oil
-Toasted sesame seeds

For the Dressing:
-3 garlic cloves
-1 lemongrass stalk, tough leaves peeled away
-1/4″ piece if ginger, peeled
-1/2 cup canola oil
-1/4 cup sesame oil
-1/3 rice win vinegar
-1/2 cup soy sauce
-3 tablespoons of honey
-1/4 cup water

For the Dressing:
Pound the garlic, ginger & lemongrass with a mortar & pestle into a smoothe paste. This can also be achieved in a food processor. Whisk all the ingredients into a glass jar & refrigerate until ready to assemble the salad.

For the Fried Shallots:
Put the vegetable oil into a heavy bottom 4 quart stock pot. Heat the oil to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Use a frying or candy thermometer to monitor the temperature. Toss the shallots in the seasoned flour shaking off any excess & gently lower into the oil with a slotted spoon. Fry until golden brown & crispy. Drain on paper towels. Can be kept in an air tight container for 24 hours.

For the Marinated Kale:
Place the Kale into a large mixing bowl & lightly coat with 3 tablespoons of the dressing. Massage the greens with your hands for about 5 minutes. The kale should start to get bright & shiny in color and feel quite tender. Add the shaved carrots & another tablespoon or to of the dressing.

To Assemble Salad:
Divide the marinated kale & carrot among four bowls. Put 1/4 cup of cooked farro on top of each & drizzle with dressing. Top with crispy shallots, torn basil leaves & toasted sesame seeds.
