I made the most amazing kale salad this weekend. I normally only like kale in soups, or cooked in some form (kale chips!). However, I made this salad that is sooo good! I can’t wait for the kale in my garden to grow!
I got the recipe here.
The Lemon Tahini Salad dressing makes this salad so great!
Lemon Tahini Salad Dressing
2 lemons, juiced
1/4 cup tahini – seseme seed paste
3 cloves garlic, smashed
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
1 dash fresh ground black pepper
6 tbsp water, to thin as needed
Place all ingredients in food processor, and process until smooth. Add as much water as needed to make salad dressing consistency.
1 bunch kale, leaves torn off the stems
1 cup grape tomatoes
1 cucumber, sliced
1/2 green bell pepper, diced
1/2 onion, diced
1 avocado, diced
1 cup blackberries
1/2 cup pepita (pumpkin seeds)
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1 batch Lemon Tahini Salad Dressing
Place all ingredients in a large bowl. Pour dressing over salad. “Massage” dressing into the kale leaves. Cover and let sit in the refrigerator at least 15-20 minutes, to let the dressing soak into the kale.
I love this salad, because it is something I can make ahead of time, and have for lunches. And no need to have a separate container for salad dressing, which in my case always spills over my lunch box!
