Kale & Avocado Salad with Tahini Dressing
4 cups chopped raw kale (about 1/2 small bunch)
3/4 cup shredded carrots
1 small avocado, diced
1/2 cup sweet onion, diced
2-3 Tbsp seeds or nuts
Simple Sweet Tahini Dressing
2 Tbsp tahini
2 Tbsp maple syrup
3 Tbsp fresh lemon juice + pinch of zest
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil (optional)
2-3 pinches cayenne
pinch of salt + a few pinches of black pepper
Wash your fresh kale greens. Run each thick leaf under warm to hot water and massage any grit away. Then refresh the leaves by running them all under ice cold water. (The hot and coldest settings on your tap will work.)
Prep your ingredients. Remove the thick vein from your kale leaves and discard. Also prep your other veggies however you’d like. Chop, dice, cube, shred… Add the chopped kale and veggies to a large mixing bowl.
Make your dressing. In a small bowl, whisk your dressing together.
Toss! Add the dressing to your bowl of veggies and kale and start tossing! You could massage if you’d like 🙂 Fluff and toss until the dressing is well absorbed into the greens and veggies.
Place in fridge and chill for at least 20 minutes prior to serving….yummy….I love it!
