This is a great salad to take to work for lunch, a mid-day snack, or even for a picnic. I typically steam kale, but if I’m not careful, it’s easy to deplete it of nutrients if I steam it too much. Raw kale can be awfully bitter, but chopped and served with other veggies and this tahini dressing, it tastes amazing. The dressing recipe is for 2 large bunches of kale, making at least 4 good-sized salad servings. Like any salad, you can throw in your favorite ingredients and actually be excited about lunch! (and be sure to read about kale’s super powers)!
1/2 C tahini
1 Tbs miso
1 tsp tamari
1/2 tsp lime juice
1 tsp agave
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
2 tsp garlic, minced
3/4 C water
Variation: You can use almond butter instead of tahini, in which case, I’d leave out the agave since almond butter is sweeter. I also sometimes add some chia seeds.
2 large bunches of kale, chopped
I diced up: cucumber, mushrooms, red onion, and green onion. I also threw in some Craisins and slivered almonds.
Put all the dressing ingredients in a blender and combine until smooth.
Combine the chopped kale with your other salad ingredients and toss well to combine.
(This is just one bunch of kale)
Pour the dressing over the salad and massage into the kale with your hands. Enjoy!
