1 bunch Lacinato kale (about 10 oz.; often sold as "dinosaur kale" or "Tuscan kale")
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
1 tablespoon tahini (sesame paste)
2 teaspoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil mayonnaise or regular mayonnaise
1 teaspoon honey
Heat grill to medium (350° to 450°). Rub kale with oil. Grill, turning once, until slightly softened and streaked brown, 5 to 6 minutes total.
Combine sesame seeds, tahini, soy sauce, mayonnaise, and honey in medium bowl. Cut kale into 1-in. slices, add to bowl, and toss to coat with dressing.
