Kale salad with tahini balsamic dressing

The trick here is massaging the kale in olive oil in a ziploc baggie for about 5 minutes. Oh and this recipe is mostly about the dressing–the salad itself is pretty basic. Be creative.

  • 1 bunch of kale
  • 2 T olive oil
  • pepitas or walnuts
  • scallions
  • shredded carrot
  • grape tomatoes
  • celery
  • 2 T tahini
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1-2 T balsamic vinegar
  • a squirt of sriracha
  • 1 T barbecue sauce 
  • shredded parmesan cheese

This one of those “throw everything into a bowl and toss” salads. Be creative with the ingredients–other veggies, such as spinach, snap peas, broccoli slaw etc would work well too.

dressing: whisk up all of the ingredients. Add more olive oil or a drizzle of water if it’s too thick.
